Mambo index.php SQL injection
|mambo-index-sql-injection (42644)||Medium Risk|
Mambo is vulnerable to SQL injection. If magic_quotes_gpc is disabled, a remote attacker could send specially-crafted SQL statements to the index.php script using the articleid or the mcname parameter, which could allow the attacker to view, add, modify or delete information in the back-end database.
Upgrade to the latest version of Mambo (4.6.4 or later), available from the Mambo Web site. See References.
