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


Severity High
Score 9.8/10


A SQL injection vulnerability in a MediaWiki script in Centreon before 20.04.14, 20.10.8, and 21.04.2 allows remote unauthenticated attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands via the host_name and service_description parameters. The vulnerability can be exploited only when a valid Knowledge Base URL is configured on the Knowledge Base configuration page and points to a MediaWiki instance. This relates to the proxy feature in class/centreon-knowledge/ProceduresProxy.class.php and include/configuration/configKnowledge/proxy/proxy.php.

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.
