[-] Vulnerabilities Description:  
  
1) User input passed through keys of the "where" parameter to  
the "ajax/api/hook/getHookList" endpoint is not properly validated  
before being used in an SQL query. This can be exploited to e.g.  
read sensitive data from the database through in-band SQL injection  
attacks. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires an  
user account with the "canadminproducts" or "canadminstyles" permission.  
  
2) User input passed through keys of the "where" parameter to  
the "ajax/api/widget/getWidgetList" endpoint is not properly validated  
before being used in an SQL query. This can be exploited to e.g.  
read sensitive data from the database through time-based SQL injection  
attacks. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires an  
user account with the "canusesitebuilder" permission.
