Exploiting these issues could allow an attacker to compromise the application, access or modify data, or exploit latent vulnerabilities in the underlying database.
Due to a programming error, the uStoreLocator module for Magento eCommerce platform allows the injection of direct SQL commands, which are executed on the backend database server through the web application.
Proof of concept:
The SQL injection vulnerability exists in the location search action. The "?" character (urlencoded representation: %3f) when included in the lat or lng parameters is converted to the "'contents of the radius parameter'" string that is added to the SQL query. This breaks the legitimate web application's SQL query and allows the user to modify the original query.
