Flaws Found in MySQL Tracking System
The issues, which allow for cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks, reside in MySQL Eventum 1.x.Flaws have been found in MySQL Eventum 1.5.5 and prior that allow malicious users to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks. Eventum is an issue-tracking system that can be used by support departments to track incoming technical support requests or by a software development team to organize tasks and bugs. According to MySQL ABs site, Eventum is used by the MySQL AB Technical Support team "to dramatically improve" its response times. One of the flaws, reported on Monday by security alerts aggregator Secunia Inc., has to do with the way input is passed to the "id" parameter in "view.php," the "release" parameter in "list.php" and the "F" parameter in "get_jsrs_data.php."
According to Secunias report, input is not properly sanitized before being returned to users. This can be used to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a users browser session in the context of an affected site.
