Checks for remote PHP code injection in Admbook

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that permits arbitrary code
injection.

Description:

The remote host is running AdmBook, a PHP-based guestbook.

The remote version of this software is prone to remote PHP code
injection due to a lack of sanitization of the HTTP header
'X-Forwarded-For'. Using a specially-crafted URL, a malicious user
can execute arbitrary command on the remote server subject to the
rights of the web server user id.
