====================================================================== 4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered some vulnerabilities in TorrentTrader, which can be exploited by malicious people and malicious users to conduct SQL injection attacks.

1) Input passed to the "email" and "wantusername" parameters in account-signup.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
