Exposure of Sensitive Information to an Unauthorized Actor
The escapeStrForLike method in TYPO3 4.2.x before 4.2.16, 4.3.x before 4.3.9, and 4.4.x before 4.4.5 does not properly escape input when the MySQL database is set to sql_mode NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via wildcard characters in a LIKE query.
CWE-200 - Information Exposure
An information exposure vulnerability is categorized as an information flow (IF) weakness, which can potentially allow unauthorized access to otherwise classified information in the application, such as confidential personal information (demographics, financials, health records, etc.), business secrets, and the application's internal environment.
