Secunia Advisory SA32887

Where:

From remote

Impact:

Security Bypass, Manipulation of data, System access

Solution Status:

Unpatched

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Star Articles, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks, bypass certain security restrictions, or compromise a vulnerable system.

1) Input passed to the "subcatid" parameter in article.list.php and to the "artid" parameter in article.print.php, article.publisher.php, article.comments.php and article.download.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

2) This vulnerability is caused due to the "user.modify.profile.php" script not properly verifying the file type of uploaded user profile pictures. This can be exploited to upload files with arbitrary extensions (e.g. ".php") and execute arbitrary PHP code on the server.

3) Access to the user.modify.profile.php, user.registration.php, admin.manage.users.php, admin.edit.user.php, and delete.php scripts is not properly restricted. This can be exploited to e.g. modify, delete, or create user profiles by directly accessing the affected scripts.


Solution:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
