Description


H!tm@N has reported a vulnerability in the Ignite Gallery component for Joomla!, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.

Input passed to the "gallery" parameter in the Joomla! installation's index.php script (when "option" is set to "com_ignitegallery" and "task" to "view") is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

Successful exploitation allows e.g. retrieval of administrator usernames and password hashes, but requires knowledge of the database table prefix.

The vulnerability is reported in versions from 0.8.0 up to and including 0.8.3.


Solution:
Update to version 0.8.3.1.

Provided and/or discovered by:
