ADOdb: PostgresSQL command injection — GLSA 200602-02

ADOdb is vulnerable to SQL injections if used in conjunction with a PostgreSQL database.

Affected Packages

dev-php/adodb on all architectures
Affected versions < 4.71
Unaffected versions >= 4.71

Background

ADOdb is an abstraction library for PHP creating a common API for a wide range of database backends.

Description

Andy Staudacher discovered that ADOdb does not properly sanitize all parameters.

Impact

By sending specifically crafted requests to an application that uses ADOdb and a PostgreSQL backend, an attacker might exploit the flaw to execute arbitrary SQL queries on the host.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All ADOdb users should upgrade to the latest version:

 # emerge --sync
 # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-php/adodb-4.71"
