CVECVE-2023-34210
CVSScvssV3_1: 7.7
SourceCVE-2023-34210

EasyUse MailHunter Ultimate, a popular email marketing tool, was found to have a SQL injection vulnerability that could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands on the database.

SQL injection is a type of attack where malicious SQL statements are inserted into an entry field for execution by the backend database. By manipulating the “ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$txtCustSQL” parameter, an authenticated user could craft SQL statements to view, modify or delete data in the database.

This puts the email lists, marketing campaigns and customer data of MailHunter Ultimate users at risk of being compromised or manipulated by attackers. They could steal customer information, send spam emails or modify campaigns without permission.

To protect yourself, users should update their MailHunter Ultimate installation to the latest version, which has addressed this vulnerability. It’s also important for all websites and applications to sanitize user input and use parameterized queries to prevent SQL injection attacks. Regular security audits and keeping software updated can help prevent vulnerabilities from being exploited.
