Vuln. Description:

1.Local file include: Input passed to the "language" parameter in "index.php" isn't properly verified, before it is used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources.

2.SQL: mcGallery PRO contains a flaw that allows a remote sql injection attacks.Input passed to the "id" "start" "album" "rand" parameter isn't properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code

3.XSS: mcGallery PRO contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because input passed to search module parameters isn't properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the server, leading to a loss of integrity.

few examples:


/show.php?start=0&id=[SQL] /show.php?start=[SQL] /index.php?album=[SQL] /show.php?rand=1&id=[SQL] /show.php?rand=[SQL]

Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
