CVE-2008-1883 - Faulty Dart

Description

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.
