A security issue and some vulnerabilities have been reported in PageDirector CMS, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions and conduct SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed via the "id" parameter to index.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) Access to siteadmin/adduser.php (when "mode" is set to "Add") is not properly restricted, which can be exploited to create administrative users.
3) Input passed via the "sub_catid" parameter to result.php (when "catid" is set) is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Restrict network access to "siteadmin/" e.g. via an .htaccess file.
