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

The information remains at the disposal of those directly interested, by the researchers themselves but also by iGuRu.gr.
Information about vulnerabilities discovered in organizations is considered extremely necessary (especially when they exist in websites with high traffic and contain sensitive user data), and for us at iGuRu.gr they are an immediate priority.
We hope that in this way, that is, the immediate exposure of any vulnerability, and not its 'hood,' we are contributing to a safer Internet.
