CVE-2021-40908 Scanner Detail

The Purchase Order Management System (POMS) is a web-based application designed to manage and streamline the process of creating and managing purchase orders. Developed by oretnom23 and available on Sourcecodester, it aims to simplify procurement processes for businesses. This application provides functionalities for tracking purchase orders, managing supplier information, and reporting. It's particularly useful for small to medium-sized businesses looking to digitize and optimize their purchasing workflows. However, the discovery of CVE-2021-40908 exposes critical vulnerabilities that could compromise the integrity and confidentiality of the system and its data.

The vulnerability stems from improper sanitization of user-supplied input in the 'username' field of the login form. By inserting specially crafted SQL commands into this field, attackers can manipulate the backend SQL queries executed by the application. This could enable unauthorized actions such as authentication bypass, extraction of sensitive database contents, or even destructive database operations, all without any form of legitimate access.

Exploitation of CVE-2021-40908 can lead to severe consequences, including unauthorized access to the application, data breaches involving sensitive information leakage, manipulation or deletion of critical data, and potentially full control over the affected system. Such breaches could result in financial losses, reputational damage, and legal implications for the affected organizations.
