CVE-2008-1883

Summary

The server in Blackboard Academic Suite 7.x stores MD5 password hashes that are provided directly by clients, which makes it easier for remote attackers to access accounts via a modified client that skips the javascript/md5.js hash calculation, and instead sends an arbitrary MD5 string.
