High-Tech Bridge SA has discovered a vulnerability in DeluxeBB, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.
Input passed via the "xthedateformat" parameter to misc.php (when "sub" is set to "register") is not 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 vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.3. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Apply patch (please see the vendor's advisory for details).
