Références of this alert: BID-25585, CERTA-2002-AVI-162, CVE-2007-3913, DSA-1369-1, VIGILANCE-VUL-7157.

Description of the vulnerability 

The GForge tool provides a workspace for developers.

The www/people/editprofile.php script permits users to edit their profile. However, this script does not filter its "skill_delete" parameter. This parameter is directly used in a SQL query:
  DELETE FROM skills_data where skills_data_id in(skill_delete, ...);

An authenticated attacker can therefore inject SQL commands in this query.
