Invision Power Board < 2.3.6 index.php name Parameter SQL Injection

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack.

Description

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 SQL injection attack due to a lack of parsing on the 'name' parameter of the index.php script. An attacker exploiting this flaw would be able to execute arbitrary commands against the remote database server.

Solution

Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
