TITLE:
PHP-Fusion "msg_send" SQL Injection Vulnerability

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA16994

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/16994/

CRITICAL:
Moderately critical

IMPACT:
Manipulation of data

WHERE:
From remote

SOFTWARE:
PHP-Fusion 6.x
http://secunia.com/product/5291/

DESCRIPTION:
rgod has discovered a vulnerability in PHP-Fusion, which can be
exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.

Input passed to the "msg_send" parameter in "messages.php" isn't
properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be
exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

Successful exploitation requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is
disabled.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 6.00.109. Other
versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
rgod
