TITLE: The Address Book Login SQL Injection Vulnerabilities


VERIFY ADVISORY: http://secunia.com/advisories/21364/

CRITICAL: Moderately critical

IMPACT: Security Bypass, Manipulation of data

WHERE: >From remote

SOFTWARE: The Address Book 1.x http://secunia.com/product/11252/

DESCRIPTION: Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in The Address Book, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.

Input passed to the "username" and "password" parameters during login 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.

The vulnerabilities have been confirmed in version 1.04e. Other versions may also be affected.

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

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY: Reported by the vendor.
