wongwaituck commented Jun 22, 2017

An SQL injection vulnerability exists in Joomla! versions 3.7.x before 3.7.1, which allows unauthenticated users to execute arbitrary SQL commands. I wanted to write an SQLi related script to see how it can be integrated into a library, hence this script was written.

This script checks if the com_fields is injectable by running the information function user(). If the username and hostname is returned, website is vulnerable.

A video of the script in action can be found here.
