FreeBSD : phpbb -- Insuffient check against HTML code in usercp_register.php (4a0b334d-8d8d-11d9-afa0-003048705d5a)

High Nessus Plugin ID 18926


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Neo Security Team reports :

If we specify a variable in the html code (any type : hidden, text, radio, check, etc) with the name allowhtml, allowbbcode or allowsmilies, is going to be on the html, bbcode and smilies in our signature.

This is a low risk vulnerability that allows users to bypass forum-wide configuration.


Update the affected package.
