Vulnerability Assessment Details

Invision Power Board 2.x.x < 04-25-06 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for ck parameter SQL injection vulnerability in IPB

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is susceptible
to multiple types of attacks.

Description :

The installation of Invision Power Board on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'ck' parameter of the 'index.php' script before
using it in database queries. An unauthenticated attacker may be able
to leverage this issue to disclose sensitive information, modify data,
or launch attacks against the underlying database.

In addition, the application reportedly permits for execution of
arbitrary PHP code contained in a posting due to a flaw in the
'search.php' script, remote file includes (requires admin capability),
and cross-site scripting attacks using specially-crafted JPEG file.
