# Impact :
***********
Phenodata University of Southampton High Energy Physics Database is prone to an SQL-injection
vulnerability because it fails to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied data before using
it in an SQL query. Exploiting this issue could allow an attacker to compromise the
application, access or modify data, or exploit latent vulnerabilities in the underlying database.
A remote attacker can send a specially crafted request to the vulnerable application and
execute arbitrary SQL commands in application`s database. Further exploitation of this
vulnerability may result in unauthorized data manipulation.
An attacker can exploit this issue using a browser or with any SQL Injector Tool.
