Dotclear <= 2.6.2 (categories.php) SQL Injection Vulnerability
--------------------------------------------------------------


[-] Software Link:

http://dotclear.org/


[-] Affected Versions:

Version 2.6.2 and probably prior versions.


[-] Vulnerability Description:

The vulnerable code is located in /admin/categories.php:

70.   # Update order
71.  if (!empty($_POST['save_order']) && !empty($_POST['categories_order'])) {
72.         $categories = json_decode($_POST['categories_order']);
73.        
74.                foreach ($categories as $category) {
75.                    if (!empty($category->item_id)) {
76.                          $core->blog->updCategoryPosition($category->item_id, $category->left, $category->right);
77.                       }
78.               }
79.       
80.                dcPage::addSuccessNotice(__('Categories have been successfully reordered.'));
81.         http::redirect('categories.php');
82.     }

User input passed through the $_POST['categories_order'] parameter is not properly sanitized before being used in a
call to the dcBlog::updCategoryPosition() method at line 76. This could be exploited to conduct SQL injection attacks
leveraging the UPDATE statement defined in the nestedTree::updatePosition() method. Successful exploitation of this
vulnerability requires an account with the \u201cmanage categories\u201d permission.


[-] Solution:

Update to version 2.6.3.
