Synopsis

vBulletin < 5.5.6 Patch Level 1 / 5.6.0 < 5.6.0 Patch Level 1 / 5.6.1 < 5.6.1 Patch Level 1 SQL Injection Vulnerability

Description

vBulletin is a popular PHP forum software used to build online communities. vBulletin versions before 5.5.6 Patch Level 1, version 5.6.0 before 5.6.0 Patch Level 1 and version 5.6.1 before 5.6.1 Patch Level 1 suffer from a SQL injection vulnerability through the 'nodeId' parameter in the getIndexableContent ajax function. A remote, unauthenticated attacker can exploit this issue to takeover the forum administrator account and achieve remote code execution on the target host.

Solution

Upgrade at least to version 5.6.1 Patch Level 1 for version 5.6.1, to version 5.6.0 Patch Level 1 for version 5.6.0 and to version 5.5.6 Patch Level 1 for versions below.
