Vulnerability Assessment Details
Checks for multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities in MyBB < 1.0
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server has a PHP application that is affected by
multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities.
The installed version of MyBB fails to validate user input to several
parameters of the 'calendar.php', 'usercp.php', 'member.php', and
'showthread.php' scripts before using them in database queries. An
attacker leverage this issues to manipulate those queries, which may
lead to disclosure of sensitive information, modification of data, or
attacks against the underlying database.
Note that these flaws can be exploited even if PHP's
'register_globals' setting is disabled and its 'magic_quotes_gpc'
setting is enabled. Also, some do not require that a possible hacker first
