Woltlab Burning Board XSS / SQL Injection Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2848
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.
DescriptionThe remote host is running Woltlab Burning Board, a web bulletin board written in PHP. This version of Burning Board is vulnerable to a remote Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attack. An attacker exploiting this flaw would typically need to convince a user to browse to a malicious URI. Success exploitation would result in the theft of confidential materials (such as authentication cookies).
This version of Woltlab is also vulnerable to a remote SQL injection
attack. An attacker exploiting this flaw would send a malformed
'email' form query to the 'verify_email()' function. Succesful exploitation
would result in the attacker being able to read or write confidential
data. In some instances, the attacker may be able to execute arbitrary
code on the remote database server.
SolutionUpgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
