ActualAnalyzer rf Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read /etc/passwd using ActualAnalyzer

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
remote file include issue.

Description :

The remote host is running ActualAnalyzer, a PHP-based tool for
monitoring web site traffic.

The version of ActualAnalyzer installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'rf' parameter of the 'direct.php' script before
using it in PHP 'require()' functions. Provided PHP's
'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may
be able to exploit this issue to view arbitrary files on the remote
host or to execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party
hosts.
