Scout Portal Toolkit forumid Parameter SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for forumid parameter SQL injection in Scount Portal Toolkit

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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

Description :

The remote host is running Scout Portal Toolkit, an open-source
toolkit for organizing collections of online resources / knowledge.

The version of Scout Portal Toolkit installed on the remote host fails
to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'forumid' parameter to the
'SPT--ForumTopics.php' script before using it in a database query.
Regardless of PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting, an unauthenticated
attacker can exploit this flaw to manipulate database queries, which
may lead to disclosure of sensitive information, modification of data,
or attacks against the underlying database.
