Security Advisory – SOS-09-006 – Plume CMS Multiple SQL Injection Vulnerabilities

Release Date: 12-Aug-2009

Last Update:

Vendor Notification Date: 16-Jun-2009

Product: Plume CMS

Platform: Independent

Affected versions: 1.2.3 (verified), possibly others

Severity Rating: High

Impact: Manipulation of data

Attack Vector: Remote with authentication

Solution Status: Unpatched

CVE reference: Not yet allocated


Plume CMS is a content management system written in PHP. The application suffers from SQL injection vulnerabilities in index.php and tools.php, as it fails to validate data supplied in the “m” variable of index.php before being used in a SQL query. Additionally, the variable “id” of tools.php is also vulnerable to the same type of attack.

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.

Please refer to the PDF version of this advisory  for proof of concept code examples.
