dirsys/modules/auth.php in JBC Explorer 7.20 RC1 and earlier does not require authentication, which allows remote attackers to (1) delete auth.inc.php via the suppr parameter, and (2) re-create the auth.inc.php file with contents that specify a new account name and password for JBC Explorer via the login and password parameters.
CWE-287 - Improper Authentication
Improper (or broken) authentication attacks are widespread, and have accounted for many of the worst data breaches in recent years. Improper authentication attacks are a class of vulnerabilities where an attacker impersonates a legitimate user by exploiting weaknesses in either session management or credential management to gain access to the user’s account. This can result in disclosure of sensitive information, and can lead to system compromise, theft, identity theft, and fraud.
