# Vendor Homepage:
# Software Link:
# Version: 2.2/2.3
# Tested on: 2.2 & 2.3
# CVE : CVE-2013-2498, CVE-2013-2499


Simple HRM system is vulnerable to sqli attacks in their login page.
Carefully crafted requests can use the scope to inject arbitrary
SQLthrough the login form and obtain information such as password

*Attack URL:* http://localhost/simplehrm/index.php/user/setLogin
*Method:* POST
*Vuln Parameter: *username=*(SQL INJECTION)*&password=abcdef
*Vuln Type*: unsanitised input argument *($name)* in

*Vuln **File:* simlehrm/flexycms/modules/user/user_manager.php
*Line:* 84
    $res_company = getsingleindexrow('CALL
get_search_sql("'.TABLE_PREFIX.'company","email_id = \''.$name.'\' AND
isactive = 1 LIMIT 1")');


We discovered that if an attacker were to grab hold of the user's password
hash, the attacker can easily spoof a cookie and impersonate as anyone to
access the system. Together with the blind sql injection stated above, an
attacker can simply blind the password hash, userid, username and recreate
a cookie.

*Vuln **File:* simlehrm/flexycms/modules/user/user_manager.php
*Line:* 215
    $v_user_password =

This vuln effectively defeats one of the primary purposes of password hashing.
