TITLE:
Employee Timeclock Software Multiple Vulnerabilities

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA38739

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/38739/

DESCRIPTION:
Secunia Research has discovered some vulnerabilities in Employee
Timeclock Software, which can be exploited by malicious, local users
to disclose sensitive information and by malicious people to disclose
sensitive information and conduct SQL injection attacks.

1) The database backup functionality stores the database backup with
a semi-predictable file name inside the web root. This can be
exploited to download the backup by guessing the file name.

2) Input passed to the "username" and "password" parameters in
auth.php and login_action.php is not properly sanitised before being
used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to modify SQL queries by
injecting arbitrary SQL code.

3) The application passes the database password via the command line
to the "mysqldump" utility, which potentially can be exploited to
disclose the password via the process list.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 0.99. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Do
not use the database backup functionality and restrict access to
existing backup files.
