CS-Cart contains a flaw that may allow an attacker to carry out an SQL injection attack. The issue is due to the 'index.php' script not properly sanitizing user-supplied input to the 'sort_by' and 'sort_order' variables. This may allow an attacker to inject or manipulate SQL queries in the back-end database.
Upgrade to version 1.3.0 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
