Pixelpost category Parameter SQL Injection Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to exploit SQL injection issue in Pixelpost

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to SQL
injection attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running Pixelpost, a photo blog application based
on PHP and MySQL.

The version of Pixelpost installed on the remote fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'category' parameter of the 'index.php'
script before using it to construct database queries. Provided PHP's
'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is disabled, an unauthenticated attacker
can exploit this flaw to manipulate database queries and, for example,
uncover the administrator's username and password hash, which can
later be used to gain administrative access to the affected

In addition, Pixelpost reportedly suffers from a similar issue
involving the 'archivedate' parameter of the 'index.php' script.
