Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in Bloginator, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions and malicious users to conduct SQL injection attacks.
1) The application allows access to the admin interface by checking if a certain cookie exists. This can be exploited to gain administrative access to the application by creating the cookie "identifyYourself" and assigning it any value.
2) Input passed to the "id" parameter in articleCall.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1A. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised and proper access restrictions are implemented.
