ViArt Shop (aka Shopping Cart) 3.5 allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via an unauthenticated add and save action for a shopping cart in cart_save.php, which reveals the SQL table names in an error message, related to code that mishandles the lack of a user_id parameter.

Weakness

The software attempts to access a file based on the filename, but it does not properly prevent that filename from identifying a link or shortcut that resolves to an unintended resource.

Affected Software

Name Vendor Start Version End Version
Viart_shop Viart 3.5 3.5

Potential Mitigations

  • Follow the principle of least privilege when assigning access rights to entities in a software system.
  • Denying access to a file can prevent an attacker from replacing that file with a link to a sensitive file. Ensure good compartmentalization in the system to provide protected areas that can be trusted.
