Technical Details & Description:
A remote sql injection web vulnerability has been discovered in the Patron Info System web-application (2016 Q1).
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute own sql commands to compromise the web-applicaation or connected dbms.

The vulnerabilities are located in the `news_id` value of the `news.php` and `online_notice_board.php` files. Remote attackers are able to 
execute sql commands by injection of malicious statements via GET method request. The vulnerability is located on the application-side and 
the request method to inject/execute is GET. The security vulnerability is a classic order by sql injection bug in the `news_id` value. 

The security risk of the sql injection vulnerability is estimated as high with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 7.4.
Exploitation of the remote sql injection web vulnerability requires no user interaction or privileged web-application user accounts.
Successful exploitation of the remote sql injection results in database management system, web-server and web-application compromise.

Request Method(s):
				[+] GET
