# Description #
################

# The email parameter is vulnerable to time-based SQL injection on the /check_availability.php endpoint that serves as a checker whether a new user's email is already exist within the database or not. Based on the payload used on 'email' parameter which is "email=tester@gmail.com'XOR(if(now()=sysdate(),sleep(5),0))XOR'fsx", the server response is about 5 seconds delay which mean it is vulnerable to MySQL Blind (Time Based). An attacker can use sqlmap to further the exploitation for extracting sensitive information from the database.
