CRITICAL: Moderately critical

IMPACT: Manipulation of data

WHERE: >From remote

SOFTWARE: PHP-Nuke 7.x - http://secunia.com/product/2385/

DESCRIPTION: Paisterist has discovered a vulnerability in PHP-Nuke, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.
Input passed to the "eid" parameter when performing a search in the Encyclopedia module is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code. Successful exploitation requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled. The vulnerability is confirmed in version 7.9. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Set "magic_quotes_gpc" to "On".

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY: Paisterist
