Some vulnerabilities have been reported in AlstraSoft Forum Pay Per Post Exchange, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.
Input passed to the "catid" parameter in index.php (if "menu" is set to "forum_catview") and to the "cat" parameter in index.php (if "menu" is set to "showcat") 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 or filter malicious characters and character sequences using a web proxy.
