Description

plugins/system/remember/remember.php in Joomla! 2.5.x before 2.5.10 and 3.0.x before 3.0.4 does not properly handle an object obtained by unserializing a cookie, which allows remote authenticated users to conduct PHP object injection attacks and cause a denial of service via unspecified vectors.

Solution(s)

  • joomla-upgrade-2_5_10
  • joomla-upgrade-3_0_4
  • joomla-upgrade-3_1_0

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
