search.php q variable XSS they list..

search.php q variable path disclosure..

I am assuming that r0t threw a ' to the application, got an SQL error and 
assumed injection. Secunia presumably did further testing and saw the 
error disclosed path, but did not allow injection.

Subject: [OSVDB Mods] eggblog vuln.

eggblog vuln.

Vuln. discovered by : r0t
Date: 22 dec. 2005
orginal advisory:http://pridels.blogspot.com/2005/12/eggblog-vuln.html
affected version:eggblog v2.0 and prior

Product Description:

eggblog is a small, simple, secure and open source blogging package. Anyone
with a php and mysql enabled server can make use of our easy to install
package to create their own personal blog.

Vuln. Description:

eggblog contains a flaw that allows a remote sql injection
attacks.Inputpassed to the  "q" parameter in "/forum/search.php" isn't
properly sanitised
before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL
queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code

eggblog contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack.
This flaw exists because input passed to parameters in "home/search.php" and
when performing a search isn't properly sanitised before being returned to
the user.
This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute
arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the
browser and the server, leading to a loss of integrity.

Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
