Title: Balero CMS v0.7.2 Multiple Blind SQL Injection Vulnerabilities
Advisory ID: ZSL-2015-5238
Type: Local/Remote
Impact: Exposure of System Information, Exposure of Sensitive Information, Manipulation of Data
Risk: (3/5)
Release Date: 07.04.2015


Balero CMS is an open source project that can help you manage the page of your company with just a few guided steps, minimizing the costs that many companies make to have your advertising medium and/or portal.


The application suffers from multiple blind SQL injection vulnerabilities when input is passed to several POST parameters thru their affected modules which are not properly sanitised before being returned to the user or used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
