Security gap on the EFKA website

Two Greek researchers, Dimitris Hatzidimitris and Anastasis Vassiliadis managed to find a security loophole on the website of the Electronic National Social Security Agency EFKA- (IKA), which allowed them to perform the SQL injection technique and gain access to the organization's database.

According to the Greek investigators, the organization was notified in time for the security gap, but to date, it has not made any repairs.

The vulnerability is SQL injection type and the specific weakness:

Parameter: asf_year (POST)
Type: error-based
Title: Microsoft SQL Server / Sybase OR error-based - WHERE or HAVING clause (IN)

"This vulnerability gave us access to the databases of the Electronic National Social Security Agency EFKA"

"After that we did not proceed below to a possible access to the server beyond the bases since we had already confirmed the weakness in the security of the website."

Here is a screenshot from the database.

Available [7]:
[*] EFKA
[*] IKA
[*] master
[*] model
[*] msdb
[*] tempdb

We notice that the tables contain sensitive user data such as names and passwords.

Although the press releases will be from very select to rarely, I said to go ... because sometimes the authors are hiding.
