ContentNow CMS 1.39 'pageid' Sql Injection + Path Disclosure

Severity : Medium Risk
Vendor : http://www.contentnow.mf4k.de/ 
Author	 : Revenge

[--------------------------------------------------]

[#] Description

ContentNow is a PHP Content Management System web 2.0 compliant, more
info can be found at vendor site.

ContentNow v1.39 is vulnerable to a sql injection and path disclosure.

[--------------------------------------------------]

Vuln #1  : Sql Injection
Impact   : Admin credentials disclosure
Exploit : http://www.0xcafebabe.it/sploits/contentnow_139_sqlinj.pl 
(Works regardless of magic quotes)

The "pageid" parameter in "index.php" isn't properly sanitised before
being used in a sql query, this can be exploited to manipulate existing
SQL query by inserting arbitrary SQL code, which can disclose sensitive
information like admin credentials.

The problem is due to:
[ index.php ]
...
...
// get/set id or startpageid from config
  -->   $pid = $_GET['pageid'];
        if (empty($pid) || $pid == 1) $pid $cnEngine->configArray[0]['startpageid'];

  -->   if (false == $cnEngine->checkPid($pid)) die ('Error loading site. No pid found.');

        $cnEngine->setId($pid);
...
...

[ function checkPid($pid) and getActualContent($param) from
/cn/library/class.engine.php ]
...
...
function checkPid($pid) {
                $cnDatabase = NewADOConnection(ADODB_DB_TYPE);
                $cnDatabase->Connect(CN_DB_HOST, CN_DB_USER,
CN_DB_PASSWORD, CN_DB_NAME);
                $sql = "SELECT pageid FROM ".CN_TBL_SECTIONS." WHERE
pageid = ".$pid;
                $res = $cnDatabase->Execute($sql);
                if ($res->RecordCount() > 0) {
                        return true;
                } else {
                        return false;
                }
        }
...
...

function getActualContent($param = '') {
                $cnDatabase = NewADOConnection(ADODB_DB_TYPE);
                $cnDatabase->Connect(CN_DB_HOST, CN_DB_USER,
CN_DB_PASSWORD, CN_DB_NAME);
                $sql = "SELECT ".TABLE_FIELDS_CONTENT." FROM
".CN_TBL_CONTENT.$this->contentLanguageSuffix." WHERE pid ".$this->pageid." AND deleted = 0 ".$param." ORDER by sort ASC";
                $res = $cnDatabase->Execute($sql);
                if ($res->RecordCount() > 0) {
                        while ($row = $res->FetchRow()) {
                                $row['contenttitle'] stripslashes($row['contenttitle']);
                                $row['contentsyskey'] stripslashes($row['contentsyskey']);
                                $row['contentsubtitle'] stripslashes($row['contentsubtitle']);
                                $row['content'] str_replace('\"','"',$row['content']);
                                $contentArray[] = $row;
                        }
                }
                $this->contentArray = $contentArray;
                return $contentArray;
        }

As you can see there's no input validation on "pageid" parameter.

Vuln #2: It is also possible to disclose the full path to index.php by
requesting index.php?pageid='
