Vulnerability CVE-2008-2019


Published: 2008-04-29   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
Simple Machines Forum (SMF), probably 1.1.4, relies on "randomly generated static" to hinder brute-force attacks on the WAV file (aka audio) CAPTCHA, which allows remote attackers to pass the CAPTCHA test via an automated attack that considers Hamming distances. NOTE: this issue reportedly exists because of an insufficient fix for CVE-2007-3308.
