Description

The version of MyBB installed on the remote host is affected by multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input to the 'fid' parameter of the 'misc.php' script and the 'Content-Disposition' field in the HTTP header to the newreply.php script. A remote attacker can exploit these issues to manipulate SQL queries, resulting in the disclosure of sensitive information and modification of data.
