Guestbook: Weird Email Reporting Error

Recommended Posts



Recently I've received two email apparently from my installation of Advanced Guestbook (2.3.1) telling me about SQL errors. My guestbook is apparently unaffected (so far?) but I'm concerned about some kind of script attack. I hope this is just some failed attempt at running a spam script rather than a security compromise.


I looked up the IPs, one's from Germany, another Italy. My guess is they've been grabbed from anonymous proxies -- I don't really know.


What do you think? Anyone with similar experience? Should I ignore this or...?

Thanks, guys, for the extra info. That injection statement looks weird but then I don't go around cracking people's sites. Since I did upgrade AG a few weeks ago to close off that hideous loophole, that's good. Hope everyone else here has done the upgrade, as well.
