CVE-2022-40405 The online community platform v4.1.2 was found to have a SQL injection vulnerability.

CVE-2022-40405 The online community platform v4.1.2 was found to have a SQL injection vulnerability.

By sending a request with the parameter ‘offset=XX’, a remote attacker can inject SQL statements that will be executed against the database.

An attacker can inject malicious code that can modify the running of the software, get sensitive information, or even access other users’ accounts if the software has a vulnerability that allows remote access.

What are the consequences of a SQL injection vulnerability?

An SQL injection vulnerability can lead to a number of serious consequences. When a remote attacker sends a request to the vulnerable software with an SQL injection, the vulnerable software can execute the injected code, which can lead to a number of consequences, such as:

▪ Getting sensitive information such as passwords or credit card information;

▪ Accessing to other users’ accounts if the vulnerable software has a vulnerability that allows remote access;

▪ Modifying the running of the software.

How to find SQL injection vulnerabilities?

The process for identifying a SQL injection vulnerability is the same for all software. You need to use a tool that can identify any SQL injection vulnerabilities that are present in the vulnerable software.

There are many different types of tools that can be used to find SQL injection vulnerabilities. A popular tool is sqlmap, which can be installed on both Windows and Linux operating systems. This tool is often used to find and exploit SQL injection vulnerabilities.

Another option for finding a SQL injection vulnerability is by using a debugger, such as WinDbg or Immunity Debugger (IDA). The debugger will allow you to see the execution of each line of code as it is being executed. With this information, you should be able to detect any SQL injections in your software, providing you with the steps necessary to fix it.

How to know if your website is vulnerable to SQL injection?

To know if your website is vulnerable to SQL injection, the following must be true:

▪ The software must allow remote access
▪ There must be a vulnerability that allows remote code execution (RCE)
▪ The software must have a parameter or function that accepts input with the SQL syntax ‘?’
If all three of these criteria are met, then it is possible for an attacker to send a request with the parameter ‘offset=XX’ and execute malicious code.
