TITLE: MaxWebPortal SQL Injection and Script Insertion Vulnerabilities


VERIFY ADVISORY: http://secunia.com/advisories/14752/

CRITICAL: Moderately critical

IMPACT: Cross Site Scripting, Manipulation of data

WHERE: >From remote

SOFTWARE: MaxWebPortal 1.x http://secunia.com/product/1667/

DESCRIPTION: Zinho has reported two vulnerabilities in MaxWebPortal, which can be exploited malicious people to conduct script insertion and SQL injection attacks.

1) Input passed to banner URL parameter in "links_add_form.asp" is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to inject arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious link is viewed.

2) Input passed to the "EVENT_ID" parameter via POST in "events_functions.asp" isn't properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

The vulnerabilities has been reported in version 1.33. Prior versions may also be vulnerable.

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