Aardvark Topsites CONFIG[path] Parameter Remote File Inclusion Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for a file include using CONFIG[path] in Aardvark Topsites

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote system contains a PHP application that is prone to remote
file inclusions attacks.

Description :

Aardvark Topsites PHP is installed on the remote host. It is an
open-source toplist management system written in PHP.

The application does not sanitize user-supplied input to the
'CONFIG[path]' variable in some PHP files, for example, 'lostpw.php'
This permits a possible hacker to include arbitrary files, possibly taken
from remote systems, and to execute them with rights under which
the webserver operates.

The flaw is exploitable if PHP's 'register_globals' setting is
enabled.

Solution :

Topsites PHP version 5.0.2 or later.
