Advanced Poll Variable Overwriting Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks if variables can be overwritten with Advanced Poll

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a data
modification vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running Advanced Poll, a simple polling application
written in PHP.

The version of Advanced Poll installed on the remote host includes
code to emulate PHP's 'register_globals' functionality when that
setting is disabled, which is true by default with recent versions of
PHP. In that case, an unauthenticated remote attacker can leverage
this flaw to bypass authentication and gain control of the application
and possibly execute arbitrary code on the remote host, subject to the
permissions of the web server user id.
