This has been corrected and all input is now properly sanitized.
If you have downloaded the software from January 2010 onwards this will not be a problem. Most users who have downloaded the software in 2009 will not be affected by the issue, but those that have hosting with relaxed PHP security settings may wish to upgrade. This can be done free at any stage on the SBD Directory Software website.
