Greetings, I have found sql injection in FuseTalk 2.0 during a legitmate audit. Resending because I got MIME errors to bugtraq@securityfocus.com. I have exchanged emails with rkeith@securityfocus.com who needed more information when I originally sent an email to vuldb@securityfocus.com

Operating system and software installed. -Microsoft SQL Server 2000 - 8.00.760 (Intel x86) -Windows NT 5.0 SP4 -Fusetalk 2.0 Forums

How the vulnerability can be reproduced -If a session is not prior established a error page disclosure will reveal an input field where direct SQL queries can be used to disclose confidential/sensitive information. -FTVAR_SUBCAT= is the parameter where the injectiion occurs and its value is sent as txForumID which allows 128 characters with no input validation. Direct SQL queries can occur to grab entire database information.

METHOD is GET Protocol is HTTP Port 80 Path may vary but was found on /community/forum/index.cfm Query is FTVAR_SUBCAT=@@version&nocookies=y&subcatname=

What impact the vulnerability has on the vulnerable system. -Allows a remote attack to directly query the database and disclose both sensitve/confidential information.

Any additional details that might help in the verification process I had javascript off, because a pop-up does try to correct the input, but through client-side validation. Mozilla Firefox was used.

The error message when session is not prior established...
