Ultimate PHP Board username Parameter Arbitrary Command Execution Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to run a command with Ultimate PHP Board

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that permits injection of
arbitrary PHP code.

Description :

The remote host is running Ultimate PHP Board (UPB).

The version of UPB installed on the remote host does not sanitize
input to the 'username' parameter of the 'chat/login.php' script
before writing it to 'chat/text.php'. Regardless of PHP's settings,
a possible hacker can leverage this flaw to inject arbitrary PHP code into
the second file and then retrieve that to have the code executed on
the affected host subject to the rights of the web server user id.
