Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in an SQL Command ('SQL Injection')
A SQL injection vulnerability in the web administration and quarantine components of Micro Focus Secure Messaging Gateway allows an unauthenticated remote attacker to execute arbitrary SQL statements against the database. This can be exploited to create an administrative account and used in conjunction with CVE-2018-12465 to achieve unauthenticated remote code execution. Affects Micro Focus Secure Messaging Gateway versions prior to 471. It does not affect previous versions of the product that use the GWAVA product name (i.e. GWAVA 6.5).
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.
