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


Severity:
=========
Critical


Details:
========
An auth bypass vulnerability is detected in the FAA AFS Evaluation Application System. The bug is located in a 
vulnerable 
login form which allows an remote attacker to bypass the application unauthorized. Successful exploitation can result 
in 
dbms & academy website compromise via injection.

Vulnerable Module(s):
                                                                [+] Login - All Forms

Proof of Concept:
=================
The auth bypass vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers. For demonstration ...

Username:                                       'or 1=1--
Password:                                       'or 1=1--
