Advisory:            Multiple SQL Injection vulnerabilities in MyBB
Name:                TKADV2005-12-001
Revision:            1.0              
Release Date:        2005/12/23 
Last Modified:       2005/12/23 
Date Reported:       2005/11/07
Author:              Tobias Klein (tk at trapkit.de)
Affected Software:   MyBB (all versions <= MyBB PR2 Rev.686) 
Risk:                Critical (x) High ( ) Medium ( ) Low ( )  
Vendor URL:          http://www.mybboard.com/ 
Vendor Status:       Vendor has released an updated version         

                    
========= 
Overview:
========= 

  MyBB is a powerful, efficient and free forum package developed in 
  PHP and MySQL. 

  Version MyBB PR2 Rev.686 and prior contain multiple SQL Injection 
  vulnerabilities.
 

======================
Vulnerability details: 
======================

Some of the following vulnerabilities can be successfully exploited
by every anonymous guest user of MyBB. To exploit the other issues
a registered user account is needed. Because of that all 
vulnerabilities are rated with a high probability of occurrence.

Every single SQL injection issue that is described in the following
allows a full compromise of a MyBB installation (f.e. steal or 
[re]set the administrator password). PoC code has been developed 
but won't be released to the public.

For a description of the calculation of the resulting threat of a 
vulnerability see reference [3]. 


[1] SQL Injection

Possible damage:           Critical
Probability of occurrence: High
Resulting threat:          Critical

HTTP method: POST

Vulnerability description:

  MyBB is prone to a SQL injection vulnerability. This issue is due
  to a lack of proper sanitization of user-supplied input before
  using it in an SQL query.

  Successful exploitation could result in a compromise of the 
  application, disclosure or modification of data, or may permit an 
  attacker to exploit vulnerabilities in the underlying database 
  implementation.
  
  This vulnerability can be successfully exploited by any anonymous
  guest user of MyBB.

        [path_to_mybb]/calendar.php?action=addevent
