      Description

      The messaging box throws an Oracle error when trying to list contacts:

      ORA-00911: invalid character

      this is due to semi-colons ; added to SQL, oracle does not like these.

      with bug reporting turned off the contact list is just shown as empty even if contacts have been added.

      Fix: edit /message/lib.php and remove ; from SQL

      Edit /message/lib.php:

      line 52:

      • ORDER BY u.firstname ASC;";
        + ORDER BY u.firstname ASC";

      line 82:

      • ORDER BY u.firstname ASC;";
        + ORDER BY u.firstname ASC";

      Corrected lib.php is attached.
