Description

According to its version number, the MyBB install hosted on the remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • A SQL injection vulnerability exists due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input during database optimization. (VulnDB 92683)

  • A SQL injection vulnerability exists due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input when creating database backups. (VulnDB 92684)

  • A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input passed via theme names. (VulnDB 92685)

  • An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to improper verification of permissions for forums where a user can only see their own threads. (VulnDB 92686)

  • A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input passed via the debug page. (VulnDB 92687)

  • An unspecified vulnerability exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input in modcp.php. (VulnDB 92688)

  • An unspecified vulnerability exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input in calendar.php. (VulnDB 92689)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied on the application's self-reported version number.
