Synopsis :

The remote web server hosts a PHP application that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

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

- A flaw exists in which accounts without login keys can
be hijacked. (VulnDB 98315)

improper implementation of UTF8. A remote attacker can
exploit this to bypass authorization checks on viewing
private messages. (VulnDB 98316)
