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


Severity High
Score 9.8/10


In Archibus Web Central before 26.2, multiple SQL Injection vulnerabilities occur in dwr/call/plaincall/workflow.runWorkflowRule.dwr. Through the injection of arbitrary SQL statements, a potential attacker can modify query syntax and perform unauthorized (and unexpected) operations against the remote database. This is fixed in all recent versions, such as version 26.2.

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.
