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

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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

parameter of the 'search.php' script 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.
