DESCRIPTION:
Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Tips Of The Day
plugin for MyBB, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct
script insertion and SQL injection attacks.

1) Input passed via the "tiptle" and "tip" POST parameters to
misc.php (when "tips" is set to "do_newtip") is not properly
sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to insert
arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's
browser session in context of an affected site if malicious data is
viewed.

2) Input passed via the "tip" parameter to admin/index.php (when
"action" is set to "edittip" and "module" is set to
"config-tipsoftheday") is not properly sanitised before being used
in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by
injecting arbitrary SQL code.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires access to the
administrative section.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.0. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
No official solution is currently available.
