Common Vulnerability Scoring System:
====================================
6.6


Product & Service Introduction:
===============================
Lazarus is a free guestbook script written in PHP that uses your MySQL database for storage and is based 
upon the excellent Advanced Guestbook script from Proxy2. I took the Advanced Guestbook and added more 
features and several layers of anti spam protection to make one of the most feature rich and spam resistant 
guestbook scripts available for free. I am always active on the forums and you can rest assured that if the 
spammers find a way past the current anti spam methods that I have others waiting in the wings. You can read my 
own guestbook to see what other people have had to say about Lazarus and my anti spam fixes for Advanced Guestbook.

Discovery Status:
=================
Published


Affected Product(s):
====================

Exploitation Technique:
=======================
Remote


Severity Level:
===============
High


Technical Details & Description:
================================
1.1
A sql injection web vulnerability has been discovered in the official Lazarus Guestbook v1.22 content management system.
The vulnerability allows an attacker to inject sql commands by usage of a vulnerable value to compromise the application dbms.

The sql injection vulnerability is located in the gbsession value of the admin.php files. Local privileged user accounts are able to 
inject own sql commands by usage of vulnerable gbsession value in the settings&panel=general module. A successful attack requires to 
manipulate a GET method request with vulnerable gbsession value. The injection is a classic sql injection vulnerability that allows to 
compromise the web-application and connected dbms.

The security risk of the sql injection vulnerability is estimated as high with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 6.6.
Exploitation of the application-side web vulnerability requires a low privileged web-application user account and no user interaction.
Successful exploitation of the security vulnerability result in web-application and database management system compromise.

Request Method(s):
				[+] GET

Vulnerable Module(s):
				[+] settings&panel=general

Vulnerable Files(s):
				[+] admin.php

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
				[+] gbsession


1.2
Multiple application-side input validation web vulnerabilities has been discovered in the official Lazarus Guestbook v1.22 content management system.
The vulnerability allows a local attacker to inject own script code as payload to the application-side of the vulnerable service function or module.

The vulnerabilities are located in the s_emotion, virtual, font_face, book_mail, text and comment_pass values of the platform inputs. Local attackers 
without and with low privileged user accounts are able to manipulate the s_emotion, virtual, font_face, book_mail, text and comment_pass values by usage 
of the platform input field module. The attack vector is persistent on the application-side and the request method to inject is POST. 

The security risk of the application-side web vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 3.7.
Exploitation of the application-side web vulnerability requires a low privileged web-application user account and low or medium user interaction.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities result in persistent phishing mails, session hijacking, persistent external redirect to malicious 
sources and application-side manipulation of affected or connected module context.

Request Method(s):
					[+] POST

Vulnerable Module(s):
					[+] 

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
					[+] s_emotion
					[+] virtual
					[+] font_face
					[+] book_mail
					[+] text
					[+] comment_pass


Proof of Concept (PoC):
=======================
1.1
The sql injection web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers with low privileged application user account and without user interaction.
