CVE-2023-24735 Scanner Detail

PMB is an open-source Integrated Library System (ILS) that provides libraries with a suite of tools for managing their physical and digital resources. The software is designed to support multiple types of libraries, including public, academic, and special libraries. PMB’s core functionalities include cataloging, circulation, acquisitions, serials management, and basic reporting. Additionally, PMB offers a web-based OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog) feature, allowing users to search for and locate library resources remotely.

CVE-2023-24735 is a vulnerability detected in PMB version 7.4.6. The vulnerability arises from a flaw in the /opac_css/pmb.php component, which permits attackers to perform open redirects by manipulating URLs. Essentially, attackers can craft a malicious URL that, when clicked by a victim user, redirects them to a different website. This attack is particularly concerning since the attacker can use the victim user’s trust in the legitimate website to launch phishing attacks, direct users to malicious websites, and steal sensitive data.

When exploited, CVE-2023-24735 can result in severe consequences for both the library and its users. Attackers who leverage this vulnerability can effectively bypass PMB’s security mechanisms, redirecting users who click on infected links to sites hosting malware or phishing schemes. This behavior could lead to users unknowingly divulging sensitive login credentials or exposing other personally identifiable information to cyber criminals.
