Secunia reports :

A vulnerability has been discovered in OpenX, which can be exploited
by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.

Input passed via the 'xajaxargs' parameter to
www/admin/updates-history.php (when 'xajax' is set to 'expandOSURow')
is not properly sanitised in e.g. the
'queryAuditBackupTablesByUpgradeId()' function

arbitrary SQL code.
