punBB < 1.2.5 profile.php SQL Injection

Medium

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host is running punBB, a web-based bulletin board. This version of punBB is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack. Due to a content-parsing flaw, attackers can inject SQL commands into the 'change_email' parameter of the profile.php script. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only need to be able to send HTTP requests to the application. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker having the ability to read or write to the database. In addition, the attacker may be able to execute arbitrary commands on the remote system.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.2.5 or higher.
