Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is running Limbo CMS, a content-management system
written in PHP.
The version of Limbo CMS installed on the remote host fails to

before using it in a database query. An unauthenticated attacker may
be able to leverage this issue to manipulate SQL queries to uncover
password hashes for arbitrary users of the affected application.
Note that successful exploitation requires that Limbo is configured to
use MySQL for its database backend, which is not the default.
