High


Details:
========
Multiple SQL Injection vulnerabilities are detected in Simple Forum PHP v2.1 Content Management System.
The vulnerability allows an attacker (remote) or local low privileged user account to inject/execute own sql commands
on the affected application dbms without user inter action. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in
dbms & application compromise. The vulnerabilities are located in the forum.php and admin.php files and bound parameters
orderType, orderBy, & p. The vulnerability in forum.php can be exploited by remote attackers without required user
inter action or privileged user account. A privileged user account is required to the exploit the sql bug in the admin.php.

Vulnerable File(s):
[+] forum.php
[+] admin.php

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
[+] orderType
[+] orderBy
[+] p


Proof of Concept:
=================
