Invision Power Board Privilege Escalation Vulnerability / SQL Injection Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for privilege escalation vulnerability in Invision Power Board

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

According to its banner, the version of Invision Power Board on the remote
host suffers from a privilege escalation issue. To carry out an attack, an
authenticated user goes to delete his own group and moves users from that
group into the root admin group.

In addition to this, the remote version of this software is vulnerable to a SQL
injection vulnerability which may allow a possible hacker to execute arbitrary SQL
statements against the remote database.

**** If you're using version Invision Power Board version 2.0.4,
**** this may be a false positive as the fix does not update the
**** version number.
