CVE-2022-0658 Scanner Detail

CommonsBooking is a WordPress plugin developed by wielebenwir, designed to manage bookings of resources, like bicycles or rooms, on a calendar basis. It is widely used by community projects, non-profits, and small businesses to facilitate the easy reservation of shared resources. The plugin integrates seamlessly with WordPress to offer a user-friendly interface and flexible functionalities for both administrators and end-users. It supports multiple locations and items, allowing for extensive customization to fit various organizational needs. This plugin is essential for entities looking to streamline their booking processes and improve accessibility to their resources.

The technical issue stems from the plugin's handling of the location parameter within the calendar_data AJAX action, which is accessible without authentication. By crafting a malicious request that includes a specially formulated SQL command in the location parameter, an attacker can trigger the SQL injection. This could allow for the execution of arbitrary SQL code on the website's database. Since the affected endpoint does not adequately sanitize this input, it opens the door for a wide range of exploitative activities by malicious actors, including data theft, site defacement, and the planting of malware.

Exploitation of this vulnerability could have severe consequences, such as unauthorized access to sensitive information, alteration or deletion of data, and potentially full control over the affected website. It compromises the integrity and confidentiality of the database, leading to a loss of trust among users and potential legal implications for the site owners. Additionally, it could serve as a gateway for further attacks, putting not just the website but also its users at risk.
