Blind SQL Injection in Webmatic
|Vulnerable Versions:||3.1.1 and probably prior|
|Advisory Publication:||June 13, 2012 [without technical details]|
|Vendor Notification:||June 13, 2012|
|Public Disclosure:||July 4, 2012|
|Vulnerability Type:||SQL Injection [CWE-89]|
|CVSSv2 Base Score:||7.5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)|
|Discovered and Provided:||High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab|
High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered vulnerability in Webmatic, which can be exploited to perform Blind SQL Injection attacks.
1.1 Input passed via the "Referer:" field of the HTTP header to index.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL query resulting in SQL injection. However the SQL injection is blind and shall be exploited by a time-based technique, or any other, suitable for blind SQL injection exploitation.
The following PoC (Proof of Concept) verifies presence of the vulnerability, if SQL injection exists - web application response time will be longer than with a normal HTTP request:
GET / HTTP/1.1
In the second PoC application response will be longer if the vulnerability is present and if the first character of administrator's hash is equal to 'a':
GET / HTTP/1.1
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is set to off.
|Currently we are not aware of any vendor-supplied patches or other solutions.|
As a temporary solution edit the application source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
