Vulnerability Description

Positive Technologies Research Team has discovered the following vulnerabilities in ELDORADO CMS:

A) SQL Injection

B) Installation path disclosure

A) SQL Injection

SQL injection is an attack technique that can be used to extract, modify, add or delete information from database servers that are used by vulnerable web applications. SQL injection vulnerabilities are caused by an unsecured programming technique that allows client-supplied data to interfere with the syntax of SQL queries. SQL is a programming language that is used by applications to communicate with database systems.

Application incorrectly validates input data. That allows attackers to conduct SQL injection attack.

Details are not provided.

B) Installation path disclosure

Application does not properly verify input data for COOKIE. This allows to call an exception that leads to web server root directory disclosure.

An attacker may use this data in further attacks.


Update to latest version.
