Thanks for the replies, I'll check out those links Alan :)
The weird thing is, we've been asked to have a look at their current system so that we can add some more functionality to it and it seems seriously insecure, passwords aren't encrypted, the db is stored on a cheap host and the app seems to include half the files from osCommerce
It really is a disgrace, we're going to advise them that the whole thing is unusable and should be scrapped so I want to make sure we can tell them exactly why they shouldn't use it.
