tag_impact = "Successful exploitation will allow remote attackers to cause SQL
Injection attack and gain sensitive information.

Impact Level: Application";

tag_insight = "The flaws are due to improper validation of user-supplied input
passed via multiple parameters to 'index.php' (when 'option' is set to
'com_easyfaq'), which allows attacker to manipulate SQL queries by
injecting arbitrary SQL code.";

since disclosure of this vulnerability. Likely none will be provided anymore.
General solution options are to upgrade to a newer release, disable respective
features, remove the product or replace the product by another one.";
