PHPX username Parameter SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for username parameter SQL injection vulnerability in PHPX

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server has a PHP application that is affected by a SQL
injection flaw.

Description :

The remote host is running PHPX, a content management system written
in PHP.

The installed version of PHPX does not validate input to the
'username' parameter of the 'admin/index.php' script before using it
in a database query. Provided PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is
off, a possible hacker can leverage this issue to manipulate SQL queries to,
for example, bypass authentication and gain administrative access to
the affected application.
