Summary0002281: Custom language value is use in queries unescaped.
DescriptionBy manipulation of the profile page, it is possible to insert bogus values in the language field.
These values are used in queries of the AMM without escaping.
This results in sql-errors being reported (being a severe security hazard).
Steps To ReproduceFill the database with bogus language information (see my other report).
Any page triggering AMM (e.g. front page) will show sql errors.
TagsNo tags attached.

See 0002280 for reproducing this bug.

On a side note: sql-errors should probably be handled more elegantly.

Hi stim,

Are you sure it is related to AMM?

The side note is piwigo-wide, but the reported bug (AMM is using a field from the database without escaping it) is AMM related.
See amm_root.class.inc.php line 360-374.

The $lang = $user['language']; contains a value from the database (that has become unescaped). It is used in the query without escaping, allowing indirect inj. of the sql. This should be fixed in the AMM plugin IMHO.
[Not sure if this is the only occurrence btw]

Using mysql_real_escape_string($lang) in SQL request is enough to fix the problem ?
Or something more strong have to be used ?

Yeah, I guess pwg_db_real_escape_string would be appropriate, but either would fix it indeed.
