CVE-2023-24733 Scanner Detail

PMB, also known as PhpMyBibli, is a free and open-source Integrated Library Systems (ILS) software solution used by libraries, archives, and documentation centers worldwide. It was primarily designed to manage library catalogs, track circulation and loan records, perform acquisitions and serial control management, and provide access to electronic resources. PMB also features a customizable interface, multilingual support, and interoperability with other library standards.

Recently, a security vulnerability was discovered in PMB version 7.4.6, specifically a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability via the query parameter at /admin/convert/export_z3950_new.php. This vulnerability was given the code CVE-2021-24733. It's worth noting that XSS attacks are a common type of injection attack where malicious scripts are injected into web pages viewed by other users. 

Exploitation of this vulnerability could have potentially disastrous consequences for libraries, archives, and documentation centers that use PMB. The impact of an XSS attack can range from defacing the library's website, stealing users' login credentials, and accessing sensitive information to executing arbitrary code on the user's system. Effectively, attackers could have unauthorized access to digital assets, putting library collections and user privacy at risk.
