By modifying the id parameter which is passed during a request to the idsp1.pl, ip.pl and einsite_director.pl CGI scripts, it is possible to cause error messages to be returned which indicates the presence of an SQL injection vulnerability. The same error messages also discloses the web root path.
Portcullis believe that the script concerned can not be exploited due to the way in which it operates; however, this can not be confirmed with a full inspection of the source code.
Exploit code is not required.
