Some vulnerabilities have been reported in ActiveBuyandSell, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed to the "catid" parameter, the "Administrator ID" field in admin.asp, the "E-mail Address" field in advertiserstart.asp, the "E-mail" field in buyer.asp, the "catid" parameter in buyersend.asp, and the "Keyword" field in search.asp is not properly sanitised before being used in an SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
2) Input passed to the "Title" parameter in sendpassword.asp is not properly sanitised before being returned to users. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site.
The vulnerabilities have been reported in version 6.2. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
