Description

The remote host is running w-agora, a web-based forum management software written in PHP.

There are multiple input validation flaws in the remote version of this software :

  • There is a SQL injection vulnerability in the file 'redir_url.php' that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary SQL statements in the remote database ;

  • There is a cross-site scripting issue that could allow an attacker to steal the cookies of the legitimate users of the remote site by sending them a specially malformed link ;

  • There is an HTTP response splitting vulnerability that could allow an attacker to perform cross-site scripting attacks against the remote host.
