SirGod has discovered a vulnerability in Limny, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.
Input passed via the "username" parameter to the "CheckLogin()" function in includes/functions.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 allows logging in without proper credentials, but requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.01. Other versions may also be affected.
