My Classifieds SQL is a Perl/CGI/MySQL script which will quickly and easily

More information about the product is available here:
MyClassifieds SQL Version is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack. The
problem is due to improper sanitization of user input for the $email
variable. A remote attacker could insert arbitrary SQL code in the $email
variable. The passwords of the users can be written into a file and made
If the value of $email is aaa (at) aaa (dot) com [email concealed]' OR 1=1 INTO OUTFILE
'/<directory-path>/pass.txt, the SQL request becomes:
select passmd5 from people where email=' aaa (at) aaa (dot) com [email concealed]' OR 1=1 INTO OUTFILE
and the passwords of the users can be written into the file pass.txt.
It is possible for an attacker to obtain passwords of users.
