Description of the vulnerability 

The Centreon product has two tools to check if a computer can be reached:
 - www/include/tools/ping.php
 - www/include/tools/traceroute.php

The user has to enter the IP address or the name of the computer to be reached. However, this variable ("host") is not filtered before being used in ping/traceroute and logged in the database.

An authenticated attacker can therefore inject SQL commands in the ping or traceroute tool of Centreon.
