MyBB CLIENT-IP SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for CLIENT-IP SQL injection vulnerability in MyBB

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is susceptible
to a SQL injection attack.

Description :

The remote version of MyBB fails to sanitize input to the 'CLIENT-IP'
request header before using it in a database query when initiating a
sesion in 'inc/class_session.php'. This may permit an unauthenticated
attacker to uncover sensitive information such as password hashes,
modify data, launch attacks against the underlying database, etc.

Note that successful exploitation is possible regardless of PHP's
settings.
