Snitz Forums 2000 SQL injection

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Determine Snitz forums version

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is using Snitz Forum 2000

This version permit a possible hacker to execute stored procedures
and non-interactive operating system commands on the system.

The problem stems from the fact that the 'Email' variable
in the register.asp module fails to properly validate and
strip out malicious SQL data.

A possible hacker, exploiting this flaw, would need network access
to the webserver. A successful attack would permit the
remote attacker the ability to potentially execute arbitrary
system commands through common SQL stored procedures such
as xp_cmdshell.
