Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in an SQL Command ('SQL Injection')
Products that use EDS Subsystem: Version 28.0.1 and prior (FactoryTalk Linx software (Previously called RSLinx Enterprise): Versions 6.00, 6.10, and 6.11, RSLinx Classic: Version 4.11.00 and prior, RSNetWorx software: Version 28.00.00 and prior, Studio 5000 Logix Designer software: Version 32 and prior) is vulnerable.The EDS subsystem does not provide adequate input sanitation, which may allow an attacker to craft specialized EDS files to inject SQL queries and manipulate the database storing the EDS files. This can lead to denial-of-service conditions.
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.
