DESCRIPTION:
Charlie Eriksen has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in the WP
Symposium plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious
users and malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.

1) Input passed via the "uid" parameter to index.php (when "page_id"
is set to id of the profile menu) is not properly sanitised before
being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL
queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

2) Input passed via multiple parameters to various scripts is not
properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be
exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

List of affected scripts and parameters:
http://[host]/wp-content/plugins/wp-symposium/ajax/symposium_groups_functions.php?action=get_group_members&gid
http://[host]/wp-content/plugins/wp-symposium/get_album_item.php?size

http://[host]/wp-content/plugins/wp-symposium/ajax/symposium_profile_functions.php?action=addFriend&friend_to

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 12.09. Other versions
