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.

Weakness

When an actor claims to have a given identity, the software does not prove or insufficiently proves that the claim is correct.
