Description

The remote web server hosts Digital Scribe, a student-teacher set of scripts written in PHP.

The version of Digital Scribe installed on the remote host is prone to a SQL injection attack through the 'login.php' script. A malicious user may be able to exploit this issue to manipulate database queries to, say, bypass authentication.
