1. Description
Care2x is PHP based Hospital Information system, It features complete clinical flow management, laboratory management, patient records, multi-user support with permissions, stock management and accounting and billing management, PACS integration and DICOM viewer. Care2x provides some other features as CCTV integration which has not been seen in other open source HIS.

This allows unauthenticated remote attacker to execute arbitrary SQL commands and obtain private information. Admin or users valid credentials aren't required. In a deeper analysis other pages are also affected with the vulnerability over the same input.

It written in PHP version 5.x, it is vulnerable to SQL Injection. The parameter on cookie 'ck_config' is vulnerable on multiples URLS occurrences, explains to continue: [parameter affected: ck_config cookie] (without authentication)
