This was added when the were a lot of attacks using CHAR keyword attempting to hack X-Cart. X-Cart versions 4.x and higher are not vulnerable to this attach.

To change this open _search.php and find this about line 100:

PHP Code:
// Kill search when certain characters are used //
        
foreach (array(";","@","http","script",".php",".txt",".html",".htm","exec","char") as $kill)    
            if (
stristr($searchstring$kill))
                die(
'Invalid Search'); 

You can remove the entire block of code, or just the "exec" and "char" at the end.

This code is no longer in the Smart Search for version 2.0 and on.

If I upgrade Smart Search from 1.3.4 to 1.3.10 which files do I actually need to update? I only ask as some of my smart search files have been fixed by Bill over the last few years and I don't want those alterations to be affected and break my store. The main reason for upgrading is to enable boolean by default (which is in the new config file) as we seem to be getting some very sporadic results when searching by manufacturer and model number when boolean isn't used. Is manufacturer not a searchable field?

Anyone using Smart Search on 4.1.12? The _search.php file just displays a blank page. It was working fine on 4.1.11

I have Smart Search and it works great, but McAfee Secure says that hackers can inject SQL thru the search... Can somebody from alteredCart help me out and resolve this issue? McAfee has it as a "level 3" vulnerability and it won't show the McAfee Secure seal on my site because of it...

hi wjbrewer,

does the smart search now support advanced filter mod?

is there a place where i can test out the search for >1000 products, with before using and after using the smart search?

last thing, i tried the demo, using a keyword javascript (was looking for the javascript book) and it returned "invalid search".

Quick question, could't find the answer myself. Can I also use Smart Search to block users from searching in !PRODUCTCODE for example? I have an Excel database to fill our store with and the !PRODUCTCODE column is for internal use only, it contains codes that I don't want our customers to see/search in. Thanks in advance.

Is this still currently an issue? Or was it resolved?

We are also getting sporadic reports of Smart Search crashing Internet Explorer; don't think it is limited to IE6; apparently doesn't occur with other browser platforms.
