Invision Power Board showtopic.php st Parameter SQL Injection

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3462


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


The remote host is running Invision Board, a CGI suite designed to set up a bulletin board system on the remote web server. This version of Invision Board is vulnerable to a flaw in the way that it handles the 'st' parameter of the 'showtopic' php script. Successful exploitation may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary SQL statements against the remote host.
