Severity High
Score 7.2/10


FreePBX 10.13.66-32bit and (SNG7-PBX-64bit-1712-2) allow post-authentication SQL injection via the order parameter. NOTE: the vendor disputes this issue because it is intentional that a user can "directly modify SQL tables ... [or] run shell scripts ... once ... logged in to the administration interface; there is no need to try to find input validation errors.

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.
