Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

'mybbadmin' cookie in the 'admin/global.php' script as well as the
extension of a file upload before using them in database queries. An
attacker may be able to leverage these issues to disclose sensitive
information, modify data, or launch attacks against the underlying
database.

Note that exploitation of the second issue may require authentication
while the first does not.
