vBulletin CSS PHP code execution
|vbulletin-css-code-execution (26440)||Medium Risk|
vBulletin could allow a remote attacker with administrative access to the application to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by improper validation of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) file uploads. An attacker could upload a malicious CSS file to the system, and then call the file using the vBulletin style chooser, which would allow the attacker to execute arbitrary PHP code on the system.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.

- CVE-2006-2335: Jelsoft vBulletin accepts uploads of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and processes them in a way that allows remote authenticated administrators to gain shell access by uploading a CSS file that contains PHP code, then selecting the file via the style chooser, which causes the PHP code to be executed. NOTE: the vendor was unable to reproduce this issue in 3.5.x. NOTE: this issue might be due to direct static code injection.
