2. Vulnerability Summary

AcyMailing component is vulnerable to SQL Injection on export controller, inside the backoffice.

3. Technical Details

To replicate the issue go to:

  • Joomla > Components > AcyMailing > Users > Export (and make the export)


Then grab the request from the export and modify it by adding the two missing parameters:

  • exportdatageoloc[geolocation_longitude]=test&exportgeolocorder='

The array position from explortdatageoloc must be an existing column from acymailing_geolocation table.


With this we get the following response (as you can see on the response we broke the SQL query):


Now we inject with our SQL query into the parameter exportgeolocorder.


And we get the response with the proof.
