MyBB Database Fingerprint



This module checks if MyBB is running behind an URL. Also uses a malformed query to force an error and fingerprint the backend database used by MyBB on version 1.6.12 and prior.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/gather/mybb_db_fingerprint
msf auxiliary(mybb_db_fingerprint) > show actions
msf auxiliary(mybb_db_fingerprint) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(mybb_db_fingerprint) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(mybb_db_fingerprint) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
