osCommerce Security Description
Ilya Sher has reported a vulnerability in Admin Access With Levels plugin for osCommerce, allowing malicious people to access administrative functions.

The problem is that it is possible to access scripts in the "admin/" directory by supplying any non-zero value to the "in_login" parameter.

Version 1.5.1 is reportedly vulnerable. Prior versions may also be affected.

The developer of osCommerce responded that "we do not provide support for contributions" and that "contributions are used at own risk".

Protect "admin/" using .htaccess or similar.
