================================= MyBB 1.6 <= SQL Injection Vulnerability =================================
Potential SQL Injection vulnerability was detected in MyBB.
MyBB is a free bulletin board system software package developed by the MyBB Group. It's supposed to be developed from XMB and DevBB bulletin board applications.
The "keywords" parameter was not properly sanitized in /private.php and /search.php which leads to SQL Injection vulnerability. Full exploitation possibility is probably mitigated by clean_keywords and clean_keywords_ft functions in inc/functions_search.php.
