Multiple Remote Vulnerabilities in PhotoPost PHP 5.0 RC3 and Older Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for multiple remote vulnerabilities in PhotoPost PHP 5.0 RC3 and older

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
several vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of PhotoPost PHP installed on the
remote host is prone to several remote vulnerabilities:

- An Access Validation Vulnerability.
The 'adm-photo.php' script fails to verify authentication
credentials, which allows a possible hacker to change the
properties of thumbnails of uploaded images.

- A SQL Injection Vulnerability.
The 'uid' parameter in the 'member.php' script is not
properly sanitized before use in SQL queries. An
attacker can leverage this flaw to disclose or modify
sensitive information or perhaps even launch attacks
against the underlying database implementation.

- A Cross-site Scripting (XSS) Vulnerability.
The 'editbio' parameter of the user profile form is not sanitized
properly, allowing a possible hacker to inject arbitrary script or
HTML in a user's browser in the context of the affected web site,
resulting in theft of authentication data or other such attacks.
