This software has all the features of the Pro version, and we have added several more which make this the most advanced toplist software available today. We have combined the power and speed of PHP and MySQL to make AutoRank PHP extremely efficient and scalable. A complete list of features is available if you would like to jump right to that. Otherwise, you can continue on and find out why AutoRank PHP is the premier PHP toplist software available today."

Problem:
Autorank PHP is vulnerable to SQL Injection attacks. The vulnerabilities can be exploited by injecting SQL queries into the user & password fields when editing an account, the email field when requesting a lost password and the username field when registering an account. If a malicious attacker logs in with the username and password '-- he will automatically be given access to the first account cataloged in the database. He can then view the HTML source code to view that users password in plain text. This also leaves the database being used by Autorank PHP open for attack. The affected file is accounts.php
