      XTREME ASP Photo Gallery SQL Injection (adminlogin.asp)


     <http://www.pensacolawebdesigns.com/> XTREME ASP Photo Gallery is "a
    photo gallery that allows easy photo management and complete
    administration via a web based interface. This interface offers many more
    features than conventional web based photo gallery's do. With XTREME ASP
    Photo Gallery, you can configure everything including colors, text styles,
    amount of imaged displayed per page and much more".

    Xtreme ASP Photo Gallery is prone to a common SQL injection vulnerability.
    The problem occurs when handling user-supplied username and password data
    supplied to authentication procedures.


    Vulnerable Systems:
     * Xtreme ASP Photo Gallery Version 2.0

    The vulnerable page adminlogin.asp is located by default in the following
    If we type as the username: 'or' and as the password: 'or' we can gain
    administrative access to the password protected administrative pages.

    Vulnerable Code:
    The following lines perform the authentication according to the user

    MM_rsUser.Source = "SELECT username, password"
    If MM_fldUserAuthorization < > "" Then MM_rsUser.Source = MM_rsUser.Source
    & "," & MM_fldUserAuthorization
    MM_rsUser.Source = MM_rsUser.Source & " FROM users WHERE username='" &
    MM_valUsername &"' AND password='" & CStr(Request.Form("password")) & "'"

    The code does not filter dangerous characters such as '. This allows a
    malicious user to inject arbitrary SQL commands into the query.

    Input from user should never be trusted. Always filter dangerous
    characters. For additional information on SQL Injections see:
