CVE-2023-37270 is a SQL Injection vulnerability in Piwigo, an open-source photo gallery software, affecting versions prior to 13.8.0. The vulnerability exists in the login of the administrator screen, where the SQL statement that acquires the HTTP Header 'User-Agent' is vulnerable to arbitrary SQL statement execution. To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would need to log in to the administrator screen even with low privileges. This could potentially result in information leakage from the database. The issue has been fixed in version 13.8.0, and as a mitigation measure, it is advised to appropriately escape user-enterable parameters when executing SQL statements verbatim with user input. The vulnerability carries a high base severity score and poses a risk to organizations as it could lead to unauthorized access and disclosure of sensitive data.
