Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in Silurus Classifieds, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed via the URL to category.php and wcategory.php, and to the "keywords" parameter in search.php 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.
2) Input passed to the "ID" parameter in category.php and wcategory.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
