Notes ===== - A SQL injection vulnerability has been identified in IssueTrak 7.0 which, if successfully exploited, could allow an attacker to access sensitive information in the database. - Authentication is generally required in order to hit this endpoint. If a non SQL injection request is made the reuslt is a redirect to the login page. However, it seems that on the back end, this request touches the database even without authentication, making it exploitable from a pre-authentication vantage point. - IssueTrak 7.0 was released in 2006 Timeline ======== 2018-05-18: Initial vendor contact 2018-05-21: Vendor implies that this version of IssueTrak is no longer supported.
