Mambo is a popular Open Source Content Management System released under the GNU General Public license (GNU GPL). There are unfortunately some serious flaws in Mambo's login feature that allow for authentication bypass. This can be used to access arbitrary accounts, but even worse can be used to eventually install harmful modules and execute arbitrary php code on the server running Mambo. The Mambo team have committed fixes for these issues to SVN, and patches are available from the official Mambo website. Users are encouraged to patch the vulnerable functionality or update their Mambo installation as soon as possible.

HAMweather Remote Code Execution September 30, 2021
HAMWeather is a popular weather forecasting software that allows webmasters to display detailed weather forecasts and statistics on their websites.

An updated version of HAMweather has been released and all users are encouraged to upgrade as soon as possible.
