Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script which is vulnerable to several
flaws.

Description :

The version of vBulletin installed on the remote host fails to
properly sanitize user-supplied input to a number of parameters and
scripts before using it in database queries and to generate dynamic
HTML. A possible hacker can exploit these issues to launch SQL injection
and cross-site scripting attacks against the affected application.
Note that the affected scripts require moderator or administrator
access, with the exception of 'joinrequests.php'.
