Vulnerability Assessment Details
Tries to exploit an command injection flaw in UBB.threads
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server contains a PHP script that permits injection of
arbitrary PHP commands.
The version of UBB.threads installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'thispath' and 'config' parameters of the
'admin/doeditconfig.php' script before using them to update the
application's configuration file. Provided PHP's 'register_globals'
setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit
this flaw to modify configuration settings for the affected
application and even injecting arbitary PHP code to be executed
whenever the config file is loaded.

Either disable PHP's 'register_globals' setting or upgrade to UBB.threads
6.5.5 or later.
