Description: Huge-IT Product Catalog is made for demonstration, sale, advertisements for your products. Imagine a stand with a variety of catalogs with a specific product category. To imagine is not difficult, to use is even easier.
The following code does not prevent an unauthenticated user from injecting SQL into functions via 'load_more_elements_into_catalog' located in ajax_url.php. Vulnerable Code in : ajax_url.php 11 define('_JEXEC', 1); 12 defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restircted access'); . . . 308 } elseif ($_POST["post"] == "load_more_elements_into_catalog") { 309 $catalog_id = $_POST["catalog_id"]; 310 $old_count = $_POST["old_count"]; 311 $count_into_page = $_POST["count_into_page"]; 312 $show_thumbs = $_POST["show_thumbs"]; 313 $show_description = $_POST["show_description"]; 314 $show_linkbutton = $_POST["show_linkbutton"]; 315 $parmalink = $_POST["parmalink"]; 316 $level = $_POST['level']; . . . 359 $query->select('*'); 360 $query->from('#__huge_it_catalog_products'); 361 $query->where('catalog_id =' . $catalog_id); 362 $query->order('ordering asc'); 363 $db->setQuery($query, $from, $count_into_page);
