Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Simple Web Content Management System, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions and conduct SQL injection attacks.
1) The application does not properly restrict access to admin/item_delete.php, which can be exploited to delete items from the database.
2) Input passed via the "id" parameter to admin/item_delete.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
3) Input passed via the "id" and "status" parameters to admin/item_status.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 the version downloaded on 2012-06-01. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Restrict access to admin/item_delete.php (e.g. via .htaccess).
