Looks like a SQL injection attack. You should always filter any input
from the web to accept only those characters and conditions which are
reasonable for that list.
Update to our phone conversation looks like id value is NOT a number (ss
looks like 55 in my web font, sorry).
In perl you should also either $dbh->quote($inputString) or use the '?'
place holder mechanism.
For example if I'm expecting a page number (or other whole number) from
form variable PAGEID I do something like this.
($pid) = $q->param('PAGEID') =~/(\d+)/; Basically it will only accept
0-9s as input. Hope this helps.
How do you have your database server setup? How are the commands being
passed to the database?
