Woltlab Burning Board < 2.7.1 Multiple Script SQL Injection (deprecated)

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3452


The remote web server contains a script that is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack.


The remote host is running Woltlab Burning Board, a web bulletin board written in PHP. This version of Burning Board is vulnerable to a remote SQL Injection attack. An attacker exploiting this flaw would send a malformed 'fileid' parameter to the 'info_db.php' or 'database.php' PHP scripts. 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.


Upgrade to version 2.7.1 or higher.
