Advanced Poll info.php

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Searches for the existence of info.php

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is running Chien Kien Uong's Advanced Poll,
a simple Poll system using PHP.

By default, this utility includes two files called info.php,
located in [path to poll]/db/misc/info.php and
[path to poll]/text/misc/info.php.

This files make a call to phpinfo() which display a lot of information
about the remote host and how PHP is configured.

A possible hacker may use this flaw to gain a more intimate knowledge
about the remote host and better prepare its attacks.

Solution : Delete these two files
Network Security Threat Level: Low

Networks Security ID: 7171
