Online vBulletin SQL Injection (SQLi) vulnerability scanner Detail

Understanding vBulletin Software Usage

vBulletin is a proprietary Internet forum software package that enables the creation and management of online communities. It is written in PHP and often uses a MariaDB or MySQL database. The software is designed for setting up community forums and includes features such as private messaging, file attachment capabilities, and a content management system. Websites using vBulletin can create engaging, social environments for discussion and sharing amongst users [1][2][3].

SQL Injection (SQLi) Vulnerability Explained

SQL Injection (SQLi) is a code injection vulnerability that targets the database layer of an application. Hackers exploit this vulnerability by manipulating standard SQL queries to gain unauthorized access to the database, alter it, retrieve, or delete data. This can be done by inserting malicious SQL statements into an entry field for execution [4].

Implications of Exploiting SQLi in vBulletin

If an attacker exploits a SQLi vulnerability in a vBulletin forum, they could potentially gain administrative access, harvest confidential user data, corrupt or delete the forum database, and even execute administrative operations on the server. Such an attack can lead to a severe breach of user privacy, loss of trust in the forum, and significant reputational damage [5].
