TITLE: NKads Login SQL Injection Vulnerability


VERIFY ADVISORY: http://secunia.com/advisories/18302/

CRITICAL: Highly critical

IMPACT: Security Bypass, Manipulation of data, System access

WHERE: >From remote

SOFTWARE: NKads 1.x http://secunia.com/product/6738/

DESCRIPTION: SoulBlack Security Research has discovered a vulnerability in NKads, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks and compromise a vulnerable system.

Input passed to the "usuario_nkads_admin" and "password_nkads_admin" parameters when logging into the administration section isn't properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

Successful exploitation requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.

This can further be exploited to bypass the authentication process and access the administration section where arbitrary PHP scripts can be uploaded to a location inside the web root (e.g. using the filename "name.jpg.php").

The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 1.0 Alfa3 (stable). Other versions may also be affected.

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