Synopsis
========

ADOdb is vulnerable to SQL injections if used in conjunction with a
PostgreSQL database.

Background
==========

ADOdb is an abstraction library for PHP creating a common API for a
wide range of database backends.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-php/adodb lt; 4.71 gt;= 4.71

Description
===========

Andy Staudacher discovered that ADOdb does not properly sanitize all
parameters.

Impact
======

By sending specifically crafted requests to an application that uses
ADOdb and a PostgreSQL backend, an attacker might exploit the flaw to
execute arbitrary SQL queries on the host.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All ADOdb users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "gt;=dev-php/adodb-4.71"
