      Postnuke Subjects Module SQL Injection Vulnerability
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SUMMARY

    The <http://home.postnuke.ru> Subjects "Module is designed for structured
    store & display text content with a possibility to store content in file
    on the disc. Probably, the best one for converting existing based on HTML
    pages site to PostNuke."

    Several SQL injection attacks are possible through several variables
    passed to the module's code.

    DETAILS

    Vulnerable Systems:
     * Postnuke Subjects module version 2.0

    The vulnerable parameters are pageid, subid and catid which are passed
    directly to the SQL statement thus paving the way for an easily
    exploitable SQL injection vulnerability. Examples are shown below:
      /index.php?module=subjects&func=listpages&subid=[SQL]
      /index.php?module=subjects&func=viewpage&pageid=[SQL]
      /index.php?module=subjects&func=listcat&catid=[SQL]

    Workaround
    The only known workaround as of this time is to remove the module from the
    system due to the critical nature of the vulnerability in question.
