The Doctor Appointment System is a web-based application designed to facilitate the booking and management of medical appointments. It is utilized by healthcare providers, clinics, and hospitals to streamline the scheduling process, reduce administrative burdens, and improve patient care efficiency. This software allows patients to book appointments online, view available slots, and select preferred doctors. Healthcare professionals use this system to manage their schedules, patient appointments, and related information. Its adoption aims to enhance accessibility, convenience, and the overall healthcare experience for both providers and patients.

The vulnerability specifically lies in the handling of the expertise parameter by the search_result.php page. By injecting SQL commands into this parameter, an attacker can manipulate the SQL query executed by the application. This is possible because the application fails to adequately sanitize user-supplied input, allowing for the injection of malicious SQL code. The impact of exploiting this vulnerability includes, but is not limited to, accessing sensitive data stored in the database, such as patient records, doctor schedules, and personal information.

Exploitation of this SQL Injection vulnerability can have severe consequences. Attackers could gain unauthorized access to the database, leading to the exposure of confidential data like patient medical records and personal details. This breach of privacy not only compromises the integrity of the healthcare provider but also poses significant risks to affected individuals. Additionally, attackers could alter or delete critical data, disrupting the operation of the healthcare facility and potentially endangering patient care.
