MyReview email SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for SQL injection flaw in MyReview

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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

Description :

The remote host is running MyReview, an open-source paper submission
and review web application.

The version of MyReview installed on the remote host fails to properly
sanitize input to the 'email' parameter before using it in the
'GetMember' function in a database query. Regardless of PHP's
'magic_quotes_gpc' and 'register_globals' settings, an unauthenticated
attacker may be able to exploit this issue to uncover sensitive
information such as password hashes, modify data, launch attacks
against the underlying database, etc.
