Monstra CMS Blind SQL Injection Vulnerability

Date Disclosed:

Date Patched:
No patch available.

Sergey Romanenko

Affected Software:
Monstra Content Management System 1.2.0

A blind SQL injection vulnerability exists in the login submit module, via a POST request. Attackers are able to abuse the 'login id' parameter to inject malicious SQL commands, which could be used to completely compromise the database's integrity.


Code Execution:


Blind SQL Injection
A remote attacker is able to change the value of certain parameters in a query within Monstra CMS, allowing the attacker to query the database and possibly gain access to sensitive information. This may be leveraged to gain access to other sensitive components of a website or publicly facing infrastructure.

Until a patch is released, administrators can escape the login input via POST request method.

BeyondTrust's Retina® Network Security Scanner scans devices to detect for this vulnerability.
