Aliaksandr Hartsuyeu has discovered some vulnerabilities in aWebBB, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion and SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed to the "tname" and "fpost" parameters in post.php, the "fullname", "emailadd", "country", "sig" and "otherav" parameters in editac.php, and to the "fullname", "emailadd", and "country" parameters in register.php is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site when malicious data is viewed.
2) Input passed to the "Username" parameter in accounts.php, changep.php, editac.php, feedback.php, fpass.php, login.php, post.php, reply.php and reply_log.php, to the "p" parameter in dpost.php, the "c" parameter in ndis.php and list.php, and to the "q" parameter in search.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Successful exploitation requires "magic_quotes_gpc" to be disabled.
The vulnerabilities have been confirmed in version 1.2. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
