========================================================================

Type:              SQL Injection
Versions Affected: <= 0.10.1

Description:
phpWebSite is an open source Content Management System released by
Electronic Student Services at Appalachian State University.

At 930 EST the phpWebSite development team was made aware that, using a
flaw in the Search module, an attacker was able to gain access to
approximately ten user names and hashed passwords using URLs formatted
in the following fashion:

http://SITE_NAME/index.php?module='+UNION+select+username,username+from+mod_users+where+user_id='1'/*
http://SITE_NAME/index.php?module='+UNION+select+username,password+from+mod_users+where+user_id='1'/*

Only versions 0.10.1 and earlier are affected. The current stable
release, 0.10.2, and the latest development release, fallout, are not
susceptible.

Patch Status:
A patch was released approximately 90 minutes after the development team
was made aware of the flaw. The patch is available from sourceforge:

http://osdn.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/phpwebsite/phpwebsite_security_patch_20051202.tgz

and on the phpwebsite main page:

http://phpwebsite.appstate.edu
