Simple Machines Forum < 1.1.4 index.php SMFCookie218 Parameter SQL Injection

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack.

Description

The remote host is running the Simple Machines Forum (SMF), a web forum. This version of SMF is vulnerable to a flaw in the way that it handles user-supplied data. Data passed to the 'SMFCookie218' parameter of the 'index.php' script can contain SQL queries that are ultimately run against the default database server. An attacker exploiting this flaw would be able to execute arbitrary SQL commands against the default database server.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.1.4 or higher.
