    Exclamation Flynax General Classifieds Multiple Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities

    I came across the following which state vulnerability of the flynax script


    This is something that we should be alert about?
    Is there a official fix?

    I am still using 4.01 and I believe there are many others who are still using


    Flynax General Classifieds v4.0 CMS - Multiple Vulnerabilities




    Common Vulnerability Scoring System:

    Choosing Flynax General Classifieds software allows you to set up any classifieds website. It is not designed for a
    particular niche so it can be adjusted to any idea of a classifieds website. This gives you a chance to choose the
    any niche for your classifieds website. For example you may create a classifieds website which will base on local
    classifieds with job ads, sport goods, motorbikes, bicycles or be oriented on all ideas in one website. Using General
    classifieds software with plugins you may create that classifieds website which you desire to have.

    The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered multiple Web Vulnerabilities in the Flynax General Classifieds v4.0 CMS.

    2012-07-13: Public or Non-Public Disclosure




    A SQL Injection vulnerability is detected in the Flynax General Classifieds v4.0 Content Management System. Remote attackers
    without privileged user accounts can execute/inject own sql commands to compromise the application dbms. The vulnerability is
    located in the general module with the bound vulnerable sort_by parameter. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability result
    in dbms (Server) or application (Web) compromise. Exploitation requires no user inter action & without privileged user account.

    Vulnerable Module(s):
    [+] General

    Vulnerable Parameter(s):
    [+] sort_by

    Multiple persistent input validation vulnerabilities are detected in the Flynax General Classifieds v4.0 Content Management System.
    The bugs allow remote attackers to implement/inject malicious script code on the application side (persistent). The persistent
    vulnerabilities are located in Administrators, User Account & Categories add/list modules with the bound vulnerable titel & username
    parameters. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability can lead to session hijacking (manager/admin) or stable (persistent) context
    manipulation. Exploitation requires low user inter action & privileged user account.

    Vulnerable Module(s):
    [+] Common > Administrators > Add an Administrator & Listing
    [+] User Accounts > Add an User Account & Listing
    [+] Categories > Add a Category & Listing

    Vulnerable Parameter(s):
    [+] Username
    [+] Titel

    Multiple non persistent cross site scripting vulnerabilities are detected in the Flynax General Classifieds v4.0 Content Management System.
    The vulnerability allows remote attackers to hijack website customer, moderator or admin sessions with medium or high required user inter
    action or local low privileged user account. The bugs are located in the seach module with the bound vulnerable Titel & Price parameters.
    Successful exploitation can result in account steal, client side phishing & client-side content request manipulation. Exploitation requires
    medium or high user inter action & without privileged web application user account.

    Vulnerable Module(s):
    [+] Search

    Vulnerable Parameter(s):
    [+] Titel
    [+] Price

    Proof of Concept:
    The SQL Injection Vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without user inter action & without privileged user account.

    The security risk of the remote sql injection vulnerability is estimated as critical.

    The security risk of the persistent input validation vulnerabilities are estimated as medium(+).

    The security risk of the non persistent cross site scripting vulnerabilities are estimated as low(+).

    Hello Guys,
    I have checked the report you mentioned above and can't confirm the vulnerabilities listed.
    But yes, the sql injection is possible if you have access to the admin panel, but if you have the access to the
    admin panel you can use default database manager and do direct commands to database.
    So if you haven't access to the admin panel then you can't do anything there.

    If someone can reproduce the listed vulnerability on our demo, please let me know but now I can
    say that vulnerabilities listed in this thread doesn't confirmed by us.
