advanced_search_results.php sql injection high load


Recommended Posts

I have a annoying hacker that is using this mywebsite.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=-6928%27%29%20OR%208645%3D7985%20AND%20%28%27reOn%27%3D%27reOn&search_in_description=1&sort=1a&page=187  that causes a super high load on the mysql server. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with this? I tried looking through the forums for code to update.

Install View Counter to control that. It allows you to control such issues, and others, and allows you to block the IP from admin.

Thank you thats a fantastic idea. I didn't do that, what I did was just changed some of the code around in the search so for example if someone types in a hackerish code like above it just cuts it out of the string, I used a replace method for that.
