Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Webee Comments component for Joomla, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks or disclose potentially sensitive information.
1) Input passed via the "articleId" parameter to index.php (when "option" is set to "com_webeecomment") is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
2) Input passed to the "controller" parameter in index.php (when "option" is set to "com_webeecomment") is not properly sanitised before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal attacks and URL-encoded NULL bytes.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.

I've also found an issue & I can't find its solution anywhere on the internet. The Webee comments works fine on local server but doesn't save any comments on live site. I can't figure out where the actual problem lies.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
