Zen Cart admin_email Parameter SQL Injection Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for admin_email parameter SQL injection vulnerability in Zen Cart

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server has a PHP application that is affected by a SQL
injection flaw.

Description :

The remote host is running Zen Cart, an open-source web-based shopping
cart written in PHP.

The installed version of Zen Cart does not validate input to the
'admin_email' parameter of the 'admin/password_forgotten.php' script
before using it in a database query. Regardless of PHP's
'magic_quotes_gpc' setting, a possible hacker can leverage this issue to
manipulate SQL queries, possibly gaining the ability to execute
arbitrary PHP code on the remote host subject to the rights of the
web server user id.
