CVECVE-2023-49690
CVSScvssV3_1: 9.8
SourceCVE-2023-49690

The Job Portal v1.0 website has been found vulnerable to SQL Injection attacks. SQL Injection is a code injection technique used to attack data-driven applications where malicious SQL statements are inserted into an entry field for execution by the backend database.

In this case, the ‘WalkinId’ parameter in the Employer/DeleteJob.php page of Job Portal does not sanitize user input before using it in a SQL query. This allows an attacker to manipulate the parameter value and inject malicious SQL code to compromise the database. They can steal, modify or delete sensitive data like user credentials, applications details etc.

As a user of the Job Portal website, you should be aware of this vulnerability and the risks to your private data. The site developers have been notified and are working on a fix. In the meantime, use strong unique passwords on your account and closely monitor your records for any suspicious activity. Consider temporary disabling your account as well until an official patch is released.

Always be cautious of what data you share online and only use trusted job sites that follow basic security practices. SQL injection flaws continue to be a top threat so users need to stay alert. With some simple precautions, you can help protect yourself from the impact of such technical issues.
