[VULNERABILITY DETAILS]
Multi-Byte SQL Injection
------------------------

As shown in frontend_helper.php:

******************************************************************
function loadanswers()
{
    global $surveyid;
    global $thissurvey, $thisstep;
    global $clienttoken;
    $clang = Yii::app()->lang;

    $scid=returnGlobal('scid',true);
    if (Yii::app()->request->getParam('loadall') == "reload")
    {
        $query = "SELECT * FROM {{saved_control}} INNER JOIN {$thissurvey['tablename']}
        ON {{saved_control}}.srid = {$thissurvey['tablename']}.id
        WHERE {{saved_control}}.sid=$surveyid\n";
        if (isset($scid)) //Would only come from email

        {
            $query .= "AND {{saved_control}}.scid={$scid}\n";
        }
        $query .="AND {{saved_control}}.identifier = '".autoEscape($_SESSION['survey_'.$surveyid]['holdname'])."' ";
******************************************************************

the function autoEscape is applied on the holdname parameter, this function is defined in the file common_helper.php

******************************************************************
function autoEscape($str) {
    if (!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {
        return addslashes ($str);
    }
    return $str;
}
******************************************************************

addslashes can be bypassed using the GBK charset. So sending this request:

******************************************************************

*******************************************************************

it is possible to bypass imcomplete survey authentication.
