Mr.SQL has reported two vulnerabilities in Five Star Review Script, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed to the "item_id" parameter in recommend.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability allows e.g. retrieval of administrator usernames and password hashes.
2) Input passed to the "words" parameter in search/index.php (when "searchWhere" is numeric) 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.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
Provided and/or discovered by: Mr.SQL
