Vulnerability Type: ====================== Host Header Injection CVE Reference: ============== CVE-2017-7725 Security Issue: ================ If a user does not specify a "canonical" URL on installation of concrete5, unauthenticated remote attackers can write to the "collectionversionblocksoutputcache" table of the MySQL Database, by making HTTP GET request with a poisoned HOST header. Some affected concrete5 webpages can then potentially render arbitrary links that can point to a malicious website. Example MySQL data from "CollectionVersionBlocksOutputCache" table.
