Beware of SQL Injection Vulnerabilities in Online Food Ordering System v1.0

CVECVE-2023-45343
CVSScvssV3_1: 9.8
SourceCVE-2023-45343

The Online Food Ordering System v1.0 has been found to be vulnerable to SQL Injection attacks. SQL Injection is a code injection technique used to attack data-driven applications by inserting malicious SQL statements into an entry field for execution by the backend database.

In this case, the ‘ticket_id’ parameter in the routers/ticket-message.php resource does not sanitize user input before using it in a SQL query. A malicious actor could craft specially formatted input containing SQL keywords and operators that can alter the structure or data on the backend database when submitted to this parameter.

This allows the attacker to view sensitive data like user credentials, payment information etc. or even modify or delete database records. They could even run administrative commands on the database like dropping tables or adding new users.

To protect yourself, users should update to the latest version of the Online Food Ordering System as soon as a patch is available from the developers. General best practices like using strong unique passwords and enabling two-factor authentication can also help reduce risks. Application developers should always sanitize and validate user input to prevent SQL injection vulnerabilities.
