It has been reported that the search module distributed with PHPNuke is vulnerable to an SQL injection attack.

PHPNuke, in some cases, does not sufficiently sanitize user-supplied input which is used when constructing SQL queries. As a result, attackers may supply malicious parameters to manipulate the structure and logic of SQL queries. This may result in unauthorized operations being performed on the underlying database. This issue may be exploited to cause sensitive information to be disclosed to a remote attacker.
