SourceCVE-2023-6413

A serious vulnerability has been discovered in Voovi Social Networking Script version 1.0 that could allow a remote attacker to compromise user accounts and data.

Voovi is a popular social media platform used by many to connect and share with friends online. Unfortunately, researchers found that the photos.php page in Voovi is vulnerable to SQL injection attacks.

SQL injection is a type of injection attack where malicious SQL statements are inserted into an entry field for execution by the backend database. In this case, by manipulating the ‘id’ and ‘user’ parameters, an attacker could craft SQL commands that allow them to extract sensitive data like user emails, passwords and private profile information from the database.

This puts all Voovi users at risk of having their accounts and personal details compromised. An attacker could use the stolen information to carry out phishing attacks or identity theft against victims.

If you are a Voovi user, you should make sure to update to the latest version immediately once an update is available from the developers to patch this vulnerability. In the meantime, be extra careful about sharing sensitive details on your profile and avoid clicking suspicious links received on the platform. Using strong and unique passwords can also help reduce risks.

It is important for social networks and websites to have robust security measures in place to prevent SQL injections and protect user privacy. We hope Voovi fixes this issue soon to enhance the safety of their user community.
