A vulnerability has been discovered in Arab Portal, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct SQL injection attacks.
Input passed to the "by" parameter in members.php (when "action" is set to "msearch") 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 requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.2. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
