xoron has reported a vulnerability in the iJoomla RSS Feeder component for Joomla, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.
Input passed to the "cat" parameter in index.php (when "option" is set to "com_ijoomla_rss" and "act" to "xml") is not properly sanitised before being used in an SQL query. 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.
