MyBB comma Parameter SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for comma parameter SQL injection vulnerability in MyBB

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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

Description :

The remote version of MyBB fails to sanitize input to the 'comma'
parameter used by several scripts before using it in database queries.
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 requires that PHP's
'register_globals' setting be enabled.
