Apache mod_auth_mysql Remote SQL Query Manipulation

by Phiber on September 1st, 2001 This authentication module for Apache is prone to a vulnerability which will allow SQL queries to be manipulated via a HTTP request. Data that is included in SQL query strings is not adequately sanitized. It may be possible for malicious users to modify the structure of SQL queries.


This issue allows the user to access resources that would normally be restricted, which may in turn provide an opportunity for the attacker to exploit other vulnerabilities that exist in the server.


Solution:

Vivek Khera upgrade mod_auth_mysql 1.10


FYI:

'mod_auth_mysql' is an authentication module required by Apache server to make use of database-based authentication using PostGreSQL.
