X7 Chat old_prefix SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for SQL injection flaw in X7 Chat

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 X7 Chat, a web-based chat program written
in PHP.

The version of X7 Chat installed on the remote host fails to properly
sanitize input to the 'old_prefix' parameter of the 'upgradev1.php'
script before using it in a database query. This may permit an
unauthenticated attacker to uncover sensitive information such as
password hashes, modify data, launch attacks against the underlying
database, etc.

Note that successful exploitation is possible regardless of PHP's
'magic_quotes_gpc' setting.
