2. Vulnerability Description
Medium 6.5 AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:P
When backing up the database, the user can supply the tables that should be backed up. The program does not check if these tables actually belong to the 4images database or to a different database. Because of this, it is possible to back up, and thus read, any database the database user has access to.
However, even if there were a check for the database, it would still be possible to perform arbitrary SELECT statements by injecting into a SELECT query that looks like this: "SELECT * FROM $table" where $table is user supplied.
Admin credentials are required to back up the database.
3. Proof of Concept
To mitigate this issue please upgrade at least to version 1.7.12:
Please note that a newer version might already be available.
