YabbSE SQL Injection
Another YabbSE SQL Injection

YaBB SE is a PHP/MySQL port of the popular forum software YaBB (yet another
bulletin board).

An SQL injection vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute malicious
SQL statements on the database remotely

Vulnerable Systems:
 * YaBB SE versions 1.5.4, 1.5.5, possibly others

The file Post.php is vulnerable to SQL injection because the quote parameter
isn't checked against malicious input, so is possible to inject SQL.

How To Exploit the vulnerability:

1- you need to be a registered user to exploit this hole.
2- Click any board you see. ex. General Discussion.
3- Click any message. ex Welcome to YaBB SE!
4- Now view the source code of this page and search this string "sesc"
withou the quotes this is the session id , is an hex number of 32 characters
ex.(13a478d8aa161c2231e6d3b36b6d19f2), you'll need this later
5- now your url is something like this
6- change your url to look like this.

http://localhost:8080/yabbse//index.php?board=1;sesc=13a478d8aa16 1c2231e6d3b36b6d19f2;action=post;threadid=1;title=Post+reply;quote=-12)+UNION+SELECT+passwd,null,null,null,null,null,null,null,null+FROM+yabbse_members+where+ID_MEMBER=1/*

the value of sesc is the value you get before from the source code

and voilá  you get the hashed password from the user with the id = 1 in the
Subject textBox something like this

Temporal Solution:

Open Post.php and go around line 49

you'll see something like this.

 $quotemsg = $quote;

change to this.

 if ( !is_numeric($quote) )
    die('Go out C==|=======>');

 $quotemsg = $quote;

that's it.
