High-Tech Bridge SA has discovered some vulnerabilities in Hycus CMS, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.
Input passed via the "user_name" and "usr_email" parameters to user/1/hregister.html, the "usr_email" parameter to user/1/hlogin.html, the "useremail" parameter to user/1/forgotpass.html, and the "q" parameter to search/1.html is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Successful exploitation requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.0.3. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
