Vulnerability Assessment Details
Checks for multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities in MyBB <= RC4
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to
multiple SQL injection attacks.
The remote version of MyBB is prone to several SQL injection attacks
due to its failure to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'username'
parameter of the 'admin/index.php' script as well as the 'location'
variable (which comes from the REQUEST_URI) of the 'global.php' script
before using it in database queries. This may permit a possible hacker to
uncover sensitive information (such as password hashes), gain
administrative access to the application, modify existing data, and
launch attacks against the underlying database.
