Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in FAQ Manager, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information and conduct SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed to the "config_path" parameter in include/header.php is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal attacks.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires that "register_globals" is enabled.
2) Input passed to the "cat_id" parameter in catagorie.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
These vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.2. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified and sanitised.
