Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls


Severity Medium
Score 5/10


MyBB (aka MyBulletinBoard) before 1.4.12 does not properly restrict uid values for group join requests, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) by using guest access to submit join request forms for moderated groups, related to usercp.php and managegroup.php.

CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls

CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
