Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in an SQL Command ('SQL Injection')
A SQL Injection vulnerability in the web framework of Cisco Prime Service Catalog could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute unauthorized Structured Query Language (SQL) queries. The vulnerability is due to a failure to validate user-supplied input that is used in SQL queries. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted SQL statement to an affected system. Successful exploitation could allow the attacker to read entries in some database tables. Cisco Bug IDs: CSCvg30333.
CWE-89 - SQL Injection
Structured Query Language (SQL) injection attacks are one of the most common types of vulnerabilities. They exploit weaknesses in vulnerable applications to gain unauthorized access to backend databases. This often occurs when an attacker enters unexpected SQL syntax in an input field. The resulting SQL statement behaves in the background in an unintended manner, which allows the possibility of unauthorized data retrieval, data modification, execution of database administration operations, and execution of commands on the operating system.
