Some vulnerabilities have been reported in CreaDirectory, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed to the "category" parameter 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 "cat" parameter in addlisting.asp and the "search" parameter in search.asp file is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
3) Input passed to the "id" parameter in error.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.
The vulnerabilities are reported in version 1.2. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
