Andrea Fabrizi has discovered a vulnerability in VirtueMart, which
can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection
Input passed via the "search_category" parameter to index.php (when
"option" is set to "com_virtuemart" and "page" is set to
"shop.browse") is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL
queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting
arbitrary SQL code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.1.6. Other versions may
also be affected.
