63 Vulnerabilities on United Nation Website Exposed Online ! Latest Notification in The Hacker News Vault by a Hacker named " Xenu (Casi) " from r00tw0rm Team that There are  63 Blind SQL injection Vulnerabilities exist on United Nation's Website (www.un.org). Blind SQL injection is identical to normal SQL Injection except that when an attacker attempts to exploit an application rather then getting a useful error message they get a generic page specified by the developer instead. This makes exploiting a potential SQL Injection attack more difficult but not impossible. An attacker can still steal data by asking a series of True and False questions through sql statements. Information purported to be stolen from the organization was posted on the site Pastebin on Thursday morning.  Martin Nesirky , a spokesperson for the Secretary General of the United Nations, confirmed the breach." A case of unauthorized access to the UN website is still being investigated ,&quo
OWASP's 2021 List Shuffle: A New Battle Plan and Primary Foe

OWASP's 2021 List Shuffle: A New Battle Plan and Primary Foe

October 20, 2021The Hacker News
Code injection attacks, the infamous king of vulnerabilities, have lost the top spot to broken access control as the worst of the worst, and developers need to take notice. In this increasingly chaotic world, there have always been a few constants that people could reliably count on: The sun will rise in the morning and set again at night, Mario will always be cooler than Sonic the Hedgehog, and code injection attacks will always occupy the top spot on the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) list of the  top ten most common  and dangerous vulnerabilities that attackers are actively exploiting. Well, the sun will rise tomorrow, and Mario still has "one-up" on Sonic, but code injection attacks have fallen out of the number one spot on the infamous OWASP list, refreshed in 2021. One of the oldest forms of attacks,  code injection vulnerabilities  have been around almost as long as computer networking. The blanket vulnerability is responsible for a wide range of attacks, inclu

Critical RCE Flaw Reported in MyBB Forum Software—Patch Your Sites

March 18, 2021Ravie Lakshmanan
A pair of critical vulnerabilities in a popular bulletin board software called MyBB could have been chained together to achieve remote code execution (RCE) without the need for prior access to a privileged account. The flaws, which were discovered by independent security researchers Simon Scannell and Carl Smith, were reported to the MyBB Team on February 22, following which it  released  an update (version 1.8.26) on March 10 addressing the issues. MyBB, formerly MyBBoard and originally MyBulletinBoard, is free and open-source forum software developed using PHP and MySQL. According to internet assets search engine Spyse, there are at least 2,100 potentially vulnerable domains that have MyBB installed. According to the researchers, the first issue — a nested auto URL persistent XSS vulnerability (CVE-2021-27889) — stems from how MyBB parses messages containing URLs during the rendering process, thus enabling any unprivileged forum user to embed stored XSS payloads into threads, p

January 04, 2013Mohit Kumar
RED HAT has fixed multiple web application security issues that allowed hackers to extract website database using Blind SQL injection. Red Hat also confirmed a cross site scripting and Local File Inclusion Vulnerabilities on their website. Mohamed Ramadan Security Researcher and Trainer Attack-Secure , told ' The Hacker News ' that last year he reported 3 flaws to the company and they finally confirm and patch those in January 2013. Blind SQL injection is identical to normal SQL Injection except that when an attacker attempts to exploit an application, rather than getting a useful error message, they get a generic page specified by the developer instead. This makes exploiting a potential SQL Injection attack more difficult but not impossible. Local file inclusion is a vulnerability that allows the attacker to read files, that are stored locally through the web application.This happens because the code of the application does not properly sanitize the include

The Mole v0.3 Released : Automatic SQL Injection Exploitation Tool

March 05, 2012Mohit Kumar
The Mole v0.3  Released : Automatic SQL Injection Exploitation Tool Nasel has just released the new version of The Mole, an automatic SQL Injection exploitation tool. Only by providing a vulnerable URL and a valid string on the site it can detect the injection and exploit it, either by using the union technique or a boolean query based technique. This release has introduced new features compared with the previous one, among these you can find that The Mole is now able to exploit injections thourgh cookie parameters. A new promising feature is that now you can exploit injections that return binary data, to achieve this the mole uses uses HEAD requests and analyzes the headers received (the size of the binary to download usually differs when the query was successful or not) and does not need to download the full binary data. In this release there has been a major change in the The Mole's architecture, and now allows to easily insert filters in order to bypass IPS/IDS rules or mod

Million ASP.Net web sites affected with mass SQL injection attack

October 19, 2011Mohit Kumar
Million ASP.Net  web sites affected with mass SQL injection attack Hackers are in the midst of a massively successful SQL injection attack targeting websites built on Microsoft's ASP.Net platform. About 180,000 pages have been affected so far, security researchers say. Attackers have planted malicious JavaScript on ASP.Net sites that causes the browser to load an iframe with one of two remote sites: www3.strongdefenseiz.in and www2.safetosecurity.rr.nu , according to security researchers at Armorize who discovered the attack. From there, the iframe attempts to plant malware on the visitor's PC via a number of browser drive-by exploits. A drive-by exploit will load malware without a visitor's knowledge or participation (no need to open a file or click on a link). Fortunately, the attackers are using known exploits, with patches available, so the attack can only be successful if a visitor is using an outdated, unpatched browser without the latest version of Adobe PDF
