Mustafa Can Bjorn has discovered some vulnerabilities in tinyBB, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks and to compromise a vulnerable system.
1) Input passed to the "tinybb_footers" parameter in footers.php isn't properly verified, before it is used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from external and local resources.
Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled.
2) Input passed to the "username" and "password" parameters in login_form.php, and to the "q" parameter in forgot.php isn't properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Successful exploitation requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.
The vulnerabilities have been confirmed in version 0.3. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
