== Overview =
CodeScan Labs (www.codescan.com), has recently released a new source 
code scanning tool, CodeScan. CodeScan is an advanced auditing tool 
designed to check web application source code for security vulnerabilities.
CodeScan utilises an intelligent source code parsing engine, traversing 
execution paths and tracking the flow of user supplied input.

During the ongoing testing of CodeScan ASP, ASPPortal v3.00 was selected
as one of the test applications.

This advisory is the result of research into the security of ASPPortal,
based on the report generated by the CodeScan tool.

application that could be exploited by either unauthenticated users,

         users ON Forums_Reply.Author =users.User_id 
         Where Topic_ID=" & request("topic") & ""
  set rs1 = cn.Execute(sql)
