Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in PHProjekt, allowing for the execution of arbitrary PHP and SQL code, and cross-site scripting attacks.

2.  Impact Information


PHProjekt is a project management and coordination tool written in PHP.


Alexios Fakos from n.runs AG has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in PHProjekt, including the execution of arbitrary SQL commands using unknown vectors (CVE-2007-1575), the execution of arbitrary PHP code using an unrestricted file upload (CVE-2007-1639), cross-site request forgeries using different modules (CVE-2007-1638), and a cross-site scripting attack using unkown vectors (CVE-2007-1576).


An authenticated user could elevate their privileges by exploiting the vulnerabilities described above. Note that the magic_quotes_gpc PHP configuration setting must be set to "off" to exploit these vulnerabilities.

3.  Resolution Information


There is no known workaround at this time.


All PHProjekt users should upgrade to the latest version:

Code Listing 3.1: Resolution
