Not sure this is currently addressed in the patches.

this is from SiteAdvisor.

We recommend that you review your security practices and establish safeguards to prevent this type of attack from re-occurring. For example, a simple check on user input can be done to filter out invalid characters or any content that might be considered "active" if rendered in a web page (such as "<" and ">" tags). Sites that are successfully hijacked like this are likely to be "re-attacked" in the future.

I know this has been addressed in a variety of patches and updates for version 5.00, which I use, and I believe this kind of cleaning is built into current versions from the beginning.

If you look in your copy of shop$db.asp, you'll probably find a routine called "CleanChars" which strips out a variety of things to prevent SQL injection and other kinds of malice.

Hi Andrew,

These issues have certainly been addressed in version 6.00 and 6.50.

You can apply them to earlier versions by going to our security patches page and either downloading the updates or applying them manually to your pages if you have a customised store:
