LifeType articleId Parameter SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to exploit SQL injection issue in LifeType

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to SQL
injection attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running LifeType, an open-source blogging platform
written in PHP.

The version of LifeType installed on the remote fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'articleId' parameter of the 'index.php'
script before using it to construct database queries. Regardless of
PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting, an unauthenticated attacker can
exploit this flaw to manipulate database queries and, for example,
recover the administrator's password hash.
