TITLE: OpenBB Cross-Site Scripting and SQL Injection Vulnerabilities

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID: SA15336

VERIFY ADVISORY: http://secunia.com/advisories/15336/

CRITICAL: Moderately critical

IMPACT: Cross Site Scripting, Manipulation of data

WHERE: >From remote

SOFTWARE: OpenBB 1.x http://secunia.com/product/1498/

DESCRIPTION: Megasky has reported two vulnerabilities in OpenBB, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks.

1) Input passed to the "TID" parameter in "read.php" isn't properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

2) Input passed to the "reverse" parameter in "member.php" isn't properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

The vulnerabilities have been reported in version 1.0.8. Other versions may also be affected.

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

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY: Megasky
