Beware of SQL Injection Vulnerability in Hakan Demiray Sayfa Sayac

CVECVE-2023-49776
CVSScvssV3_1: 9.3
SourceCVE-2023-49776

The developers of Hakan Demiray Sayfa Sayac, a page counter tool, have disclosed a SQL injection vulnerability affecting versions 2.6 and below. SQL injection allows attackers to interfere with the queries that a database sends to the database server through a web application. By manipulating parameters in the database queries, attackers can view data from the database they shouldn’t have access to or even take control of the underlying database server.

In this case, the Sayfa Sayac application failed to properly sanitize user-supplied input in SQL queries. By entering specially crafted parameters, an attacker could potentially view sensitive data in the database or even take control of the database server. This could lead to data breaches involving site analytics or other information stored in the database.

If you are using Sayfa Sayac, you should immediately update to the latest version to patch this vulnerability. It’s also recommended to audit the types of data stored in the database and consider removing any sensitive information. Going forward, always keep your applications up to date as vulnerabilities are discovered and patched. You can also minimize attack surfaces by limiting database access permissions wherever possible.

Staying on top of security issues and keeping your software updated is the best way to protect yourself and your users from SQL injection and other attacks. Contact Hakan Demiray Sayfa Sayac support if you have any other questions.
