MercuryBoard < 1.1.6 SQL Injection

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a SQL Injection attack

Description

The remote host is running MercuryBoard, a web-based Message board written in PHP. This version of MercuryBoard is vulnerable to a remote SQL Injection flaw. This version of MercuryBoard fails to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'login.php' script. An attacker, exploiting this flaw, would send a malformed HTTP query to the application. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker being able to read or write Confidential data. In addition, the attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on the remote database server.
