High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered SQL injection vulnerability in OrangeHRM, which could be exploited to alter SQL requests to application's database.
The vulnerability was discovered in the "/symfony/web/index.php" script while handling the "sortField" HTTP GET parameter.

The vulnerability could be triggered by accessing the following URIs:
The PoC codes below are based on DNS Exfiltration technique and can be used in cases when application's database is hosted on a Windows system. The PoCs will send a DNS request demanding IP addess for `version()` (or any other sensitive information from the database) subdomain of ".attacker.com" (a domain name, DNS server of which is controlled by the attacker):
