Description

MyBB contains a flaw related to the Admin Control Panel that allows a remote cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate input passed via an orphaned attachment filename before being returned to the user. This may allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between their browser and the server.
