Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Symphony CMS, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion and SQL injection attacks.

1) Input passed via the "send-email[recipient]" parameter to about/ is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries in symphony/lib/toolkit/events/event.section.php. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

2) Input passed via the "fields[website]" parameter while posting comments is not properly sanitised before being displayed to the user. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site when the malicious link is clicked.

These vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2.1.1. Other versions may also be affected.

3) Input passed via the "token" parameter to symphony/index.php (when "action" is set to "resetpass" and "symphony-page" is set to "login") is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query in symphony/content/content.login.php. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

This vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.1.2. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to version 2.2.1.
