Description

Mahara is prone to multiple remote vulnerabilities, including:

  1. Multiple HTML-injection vulnerabilities
  2. A cross-site request-forgery vulnerability
  3. Multiple SQL-injection vulnerabilities
  4. An authentication-bypass vulnerability

Exploiting these issues could allow an attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, control how the site is rendered to the user, compromise the application, access or modify data, or exploit latent vulnerabilities in the underlying database, gain unauthorized access to the application and perform certain administrative tasks.
