MyBB member.php SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for SQL injection vulnerability in MyBB's member.php script

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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

Description :

The remote version of MyBB fails to sanitize user-supplied input to
the avatar upload system via the 'uid' parameter of the 'member.php'
script. If PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is disabled, a possible hacker
may be able to leverage this issue to uncover password hashes and
thereby gain access to the application's admin panel.
