IMPACT: Manipulation of data

SOFTWARE: Plans 6.x http://secunia.com/product/5021/

DESCRIPTION: A vulnerability has been reported in Plans, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.

Input passed to the "evt_id" parameter in "plans.cgi" isn't properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

Successful exploitation requires that SQL database support has been enabled in "plans_config.pl" (the default setting is flat files).

The vulnerability has been reported in version 6.7.1. Prior versions may also be affected.
