Re: Vulnerabilities



This is a nonexistent vulnerability. The unsanitized variable referenced is only used in the Javascript on the page and is never passed back for processing by the PHP code, much less in any SQL statement. Furthermore, the page that this summary references is only accessible by users who have administrative access to the site and not by random external users.

In the future Mr "xoxland", it might be good for you to let the developers of the software know about your discoveries before you go public with them. In this way, you can avoid the embarrassment of issuing false advisories as well.
