EZSA-2017-001: SQL injection in legacy ezsearchengine (update)

Publication date : 07/03/2017
Severity : High
Affected versions : 4.5 - 5.4, all community versions at time of writing (legacy only)
Resolving versions :,, and published service packs for all other supported versions

It was found that the previous fix EZSA-2016-007 for an SQL injection security breach in the "ezsearchengine" search plugin, was not complete. There were circumstances where escaping could be breached, and injection would still be possible. By its nature, such a vulnerability is potentially severe, and we strongly recommend that you patch your systems as soon as possible.

We thank Markus Wulftange of Code White for bringing this important issue to our attention in a professional and responsible manner.

Patch for eZ Publish (legacy): https://github.com/ezsystems/ezpublish-legacy/commit/874d7c0e739f7094671205dbf57335e670d97f3f
