Minor security issue in punbb with SQLite
Georgi Guninski security advisory #76, 2019
Running punbb-master from h t t p s://github.com/punbb/punbb from Thu 07 Nov 2019 11:23:33 AM UTC
Installing on h t t p://host/forum In install.php set:
database type: SQLite3
database name: database1
Accessing h t t p://host/forum/database1 returns the full raw database, including hashes and email addresses.
If attacker guesses the name "database1" or brute force from common database names, this gives her read access of the raw database.
If you consider this a bug, as workaround set database to something hard to guess.
Other forum software explicitly want the SQLite database to be non-accessible from the web.
