Some vulnerabilities have been reported in phpBB, which can be exploited by malicious people to execute arbitrary commands, conduct SQL injection and cross-site scripting attacks.
1) The "highlight" parameter in "viewtopic.php" is not properly sanitised when it is decoded. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary commands on a vulnerable server.
2) Input passed to the username handling isn't properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site.
3) Other input passed to the username handling isn't properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can potentially be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
The vulnerabilities have been reported in versions prior to 2.0.11.
