Details:  
========  
A blind SQL Injection web vulnerability is detected in the official Monstra v1.2.0 Content Management System.  
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject own sql commands to compromise the vulnerable application dbms.  
  
The blind sql injection web vulnerability is located in the login submit (POST) module. Attackers are able to inject   
own sql commands by manipulation of the the `login id` parameter.   
  
Exploitation of the blind sql vulnerability does not require user interaction or a privileged application user account.  
Successful exploitation of the sql injection vulnerability results in database management system & application compromise.  
  
Vulnerable Module(s):  
[+] Admin Auth (./admin)  
  
Vulnerable Parameter(s):  
[+] login  
  
  
Proof of Concept:  
=================  
The blind sql injection web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without privileged application user account   
and user interaction. For demonstration or reproduce ...  
  
Example: POST  
login=[SQL INJECTION]&login_submit=Enter&password=[x]   
  
PoC: POST
