Job Portal Website Vulnerable to SQL Injection Attacks – Protect Your Data Now

CVECVE-2023-49684
CVSScvssV3_1: 9.8
SourceCVE-2023-49684

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, in which malicious SQL statements are inserted into an entry field for execution by the backend database.

Hackers can exploit SQL Injection vulnerabilities to view, modify or delete sensitive data like user credentials, payment details etc. from the database. In this case, the ‘txtTitle’ parameter in the Employer/InsertWalkin.php page of Job Portal does not sanitize user input before using it in a SQL query. This allows an attacker to craft malicious SQL queries and gain unauthorized access to the database.

Some recommendations to protect yourself include:
– Update to the latest version of Job Portal as soon as a patch is available from the developers to fix the vulnerability.
– Use strong and unique passwords for your account on the website.
– Monitor your accounts regularly for any suspicious activity.
– Consider using a password manager to generate and store secure passwords.
– Be cautious about providing sensitive details on websites until the vulnerability is patched.
