Laurent Gaffié and Benjamin Mossé have reported some vulnerabilities in Hpecs Shopping Cart, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.
Input passed to the "username" and "userpwd" form field parameters when logging in, and to the "searchstring" form field parameter when performing a search is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
