Russ McRee has reported some vulnerabilities in photokorn, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting, cross-site request forgery, and SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed via the "where", "sort", "order", and "Match" parameters to search.php is not properly sanitised before being used in an SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
NOTE: The "where" parameter can further be exploited to conduct cross-site scripting attacks via SQL error messages.
2) Input passed via the "qc" parameter in admin/admin.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a logged-in administrator's browser session in context of an affected site.
3) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validation checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to perform administrative actions e.g. when a logged-in administrator visits a malicious web page.
The vulnerabilities are reported in version 1.81. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Do not browse untrusted sites or follow untrusted links while being logged-in to the application.
