Overview: Quoting http://www.phprojekt.com/features.php?&newlang=eng "PHProjekt is a modular application for the coordination of group activities and to share informations and document via the web. Components of PHProjekt: Group calendar, project management, time card system, file management, contact manager, mail client and many other modules. PHProjekt supports many protocols like ldap, xml/soap and webdav and is available for 38 languages and 9 databases."

Description: Multiple vulnerabilities have been found within different modules.

In detail, the following flaws were determined during a quick source code review for the modules Projects, Contacts, Helpdesk, Notes, Search and Mail. During the validation the php.ini setting "magic_quotes_gpc" was deactivated.

a) The application suffers from a classical SQL Injection vulnerability in the calendar module. b) A Blind SQL Injection can be triggered within the search module. c) Furthermore it is possible to manipulate a cookie value, resulting in another Blind SQL Injection when the user logs out.


There may be other modules which are affected, but they have not been subject to review at this point.

Solution: The vulnerabilities were reported on Dec 31 2006 and an update has been released on Mar 14 2007.
