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


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


Technical Details & Description:
================================
A remote sql injection web vulnerability has been discovered in the official News-Aktuell - PressePortal website 
web-application.
The vulnerability allows remote attacker to execute own sql commands by usage of a vulnerable application value GET 
method request.

The vulnerability is located in the `../services/content` module with the vulnerable iframe.htx file. Remote attackers 
are able 
to inject own sql commands by usage of the vulnerable `id` parameter. After the inject the website returns with a a 
obviously 
blank page but when you watch the source the execute is in the listed rss and context values. The issue is a classic 
remote sql 
injection. The security risk of the remote sql injection web vulnerability is estimated as critical with a cvss (common 
vulnerability 
scoring system) count of 8.7(+).

Exploitation of the sql injection web vulnerability requires no privileged web application user account and also no 
user interaction. 
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in web application (website), account system & dbms compromise.

Proof of Concept (PoC):
=======================
The remote sql injection web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without user interaction and also 
without privileged 
web application user account. For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided
