    The $sortby parameter passed to 'masort' function isn't properly sanitized before being used in a call to create_function()
    at line 1080, this can be exploited to inject and execute arbitrary PHP code. The only possible attack vector is when handling
    the 'query_engine' command, here input passed through $_REQUEST['orderby'] is passed as $sortby parameter to 'masort' function.
