Hello thinkery

I've been working with projectlog for a while now, and I have to say.. it has been an absolute pleasure to style and customise - if only other extensions were as clean as this one!

After a recent search on google I came across this page:

Could you please confirm this vulnerability has been locked down? I haven't been able to find any info on your site about it.

Thanks again, I will be crediting you on my site once it's finished.. I'll let you know when I do.

Hi Dave - we can't confirm that this is a valid exploit (normally we hear about it immediately and release a patch - the link you posted is over a year old and we would have heard about it before now!). We've double checked the cat model and verified that it will only accept integers to avoid sql injections; however, we did find a couple of instances where we could be a little more strict - I've attached a patch file.

You can unzip the attached and replace the corresponding files via FTP (for example: site/models/cat.php will replace your front end 'com_projectlog/models/cat.php). Please back up the files you replace and let us know if you come across any issues - if all works as expected we'll add these changes to the zip download just in case! Thanks.
