to inject own sql commands by usage of the vulnerable `id` parameter. After the inject the website returns with a a obviously
blank page but when you watch the source the execute is in the listed rss and context values. The issue is a classic remote sql
injection. The security risk of the remote sql injection web vulnerability is estimated as critical with a cvss (common vulnerability
scoring system) count of 8.7(+).
