Piwigo is a photo gallery application written in PHP. The application suffers from a SQL injection vulnerability in comments.php, as it fails to validate data supplied in the “items_number” variable before being used in an SQL query.
SQL injection attacks can give an attacker access to backend database contents, the ability to remotely execute system commands, or in some circumstances the means to take control of the operating system hosting the database.
