CRITICAL: Moderately critical

IMPACT: Manipulation of data

DESCRIPTION: Aliaksandr Hartsuyeu has reported a vulnerability in RateIt, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.

Input passed to the "rateit_id" parameter in rateit.php is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

Successful exploitation requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.

The vulnerability has been reported in version 2.2. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
