The vulnerabilities are due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied input by the affected software. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending crafted SQL queries to the targeted device. Successful exploitation could allow the attacker to view, add, or modify information in the back-end database or manipulate SQL queries by injecting and executing arbitrary SQL code.
Proof-of-concept code that exploits these vulnerabilities is publicly available.
The vendor has not confirmed the vulnerability and has not released updated software.
The security vulnerability applies to the following combinations of products.
