A vulnerability has been reported in the astatsPRO component for Joomla, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks.
Input passed to the "id" parameter in administrator/components/com_astatspro/includes/count_dl_or_link.inc.php through administrator/components/com_astatspro/refer.php or administrator/components/com_astatspro/getfile.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
NOTE: Certain parts of the SQL query are not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can further be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
The vulnerability is reported in version 1.0.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
