Simple Machines Forum < 1.0.7 Code Injection

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a Script Injection attack.

Description

The remote host is running the Simple Machines Forum (SMF), a web forum. This version of SMF is vulnerable to a remote code injection flaw. An attacker exploiting this flaw would be able to execute arbitrary PHP code on the target web server. In addition, the remote host is vulnerable to an HTML injection attack. An attacker exploiting this flaw would create a post that included malicious script code. The attacker would then wait for a vulnerable user to peruse the page. Successful exploitation would result in malicious code executing within the user browser.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.0.7 or higher.
