Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in an SQL Command ('SQL Injection')


Severity Medium
Score 6.5/10


Multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities in TestLink through 1.9.19 allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary SQL commands via the (1) tproject_id parameter to keywordsView.php; the (2) req_spec_id parameter to reqSpecCompareRevisions.php; the (3) requirement_id parameter to reqCompareVersions.php; the (4) build_id parameter to planUpdateTC.php; the (5) tplan_id parameter to newest_tcversions.php; the (6) tplan_id parameter to tcCreatedPerUserGUI.php; the (7) tcase_id parameter to tcAssign2Tplan.php; or the (8) testcase_id parameter to tcCompareVersions.php. Authentication is often easy to achieve: a guest account, that can execute this attack, can be created by anyone in the default configuration.

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.
