Description

According to its banner, the version of Invision Power Board on the remote host suffers from multiple vulnerabilities :

  • SQL Injection Vulnerability The application fails to sanitize user-input supplied through the 'pass_hash' cookie in the 'sources/login.php' script, which can be exploited to affect database queries, potentially revealing sensitive information.

  • Multiple Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities An attacker can pass arbitrary HTML and script code through the 'highlite' parameter of the 'sources/search.php' and 'sources/topics.php' scripts.
