Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered SQL-Injection vulnerability in a popular social networking software SocialEngine. The vulnerability can be exploited to gain access to potentially sensitive information in database and compromise the entire website.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient filtration of input data passed via the "orderby" HTTP GET parameter to "/index.php" script. A remote unauthenticated attacker can modify present query and execute arbitrary SQL commands in application's database.

A simple exploit below uses time-based SQL injection technique to demonstrate existence of the vulnerability. The following HTTP request will make page render for 99 seconds, if MySQL server version is is equal "5":

http://[host]/blogs/?category=0&end_date=&orderby=1%20AND%20%28SELECT%20*%20FROM%20%28SELECT%28SLEEP%28IF%28MID%28version%28%29,1,1%29%20LIKE%205,99,0%29%29%29%29MTeU%29
