Affected Systems: 4.6 and prior versions

Issue: Sql Injection Vulnerability

Author: G00db0y from Zone-h Security Labs -

attacker to disclose sensitive information that could be used to gain unauthorized access.
"PhotoPost PHP Pro lets your users upload and discuss photos in galleries that you create 
as well as public and private albums that they create, and it integrates seamlessly into 
your current site design. PhotoPost PHP Pro can
even use your existing forum login system (if you have one) to keep your users from having 
to register twice, and our complete forum integration option lets you display your 
PhotoPost albums and photos inside your vBulletin or UBB Threads forum"



The problems exist due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data. A remote 
attacker may exploit these issues to influence SQL query logic to disclose sensitive 
information that could be used to gain unauthorized access.

For example try this:
