Application: Xeobook <= 0.93
Vendor Status: not contacted

Quote from www.xeoman.de:
"Xeobook is a highly customizable, easy to setup, secure guestbook
script based on PHP4 and MySQL. If you like a clean and fully
customizable layout this might be worth a try."
There are some SQL injection vulnerabilities which can be
exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.
The vulnerability has been discovered in the latest version,
0.93. Other versions may also be affected.
Multiple SQL Injections in sign.php
Input passed to the most parameters aren't properly sanitised
before they are used in a SQL query.
The best examples which an attacker could be use are
`$HTTP_USER_AGENT` and `$gb_entry_text`.
All other variables are affected too but they are shorted by
the scripts `format_wordlength` function.
The other variables are `$gb_location`, `$gb_fullname` and
Proof of Concept:
Put `/*` into the `$gb_entry_text` variable
rjonesx has already discovered a vulnerability in Xeobook,
which can be exploited to perform script insertion attacks.
Because there is no released patch or something similar yet,
I will not contact the vendor. To fix all these bugs you
could write the complete guestbook new.
You must have register_globals enabled to run this script,
disable it and edit the source code to ensure that input is
properly sanitised and change all input variables.
Use functions like PHP's htmlentities() and
