1874.patch has possible sql injection in createUser() from $email field.

$email is checked with validEmail() and allows email like ["\'; SQL"@example.com] (this actually should be valid email address)
there should be line [$email=mysql_real_escape_string($email);] just before sql $query is created.

$login is checked with checkUser() to only allow alpha-numeric chars and is safe to use.

... also checkUser() and checkEmail() both return 'success' when the actual field is not set.

while this obviously has issues, I more mean it to be a demonstration on how to do it, we need to build this into web services anyways....
