VERIFY ADVISORY: http://secunia.com/advisories/22238/

CRITICAL: Moderately critical

IMPACT: Manipulation of data, Exposure of sensitive information

WHERE: >From remote

SOFTWARE: OpenBiblio 0.x http://secunia.com/product/12176/

DESCRIPTION: Some vulnerabilities have been reported in OpenBiblio, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information, and by malicious users to conduct SQL injection attacks.

1) An unspecified error within shared/header.php and shared/help.php can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources.

2) An unspecified error allows users with "report" privileges to conduct SQL injection attacks. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

SOLUTION: Vulnerability #1 has been fixed in version 0.5.2. As workaround for vulnerability #2, give "report" privileges to trusted users only.

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