AppServ appserv_root Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for appserv_root parameter remote file include vulnerability in AppServ

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server is prone to a remote file inclusion
vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running AppServ, a compilation of
Apache, PHP, MySQL, and phpMyAdmin for Windows and Linux.

The version of AppServ installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'appserv_root' parameter of the
'appserv/main.php' script before using it in a PHP 'include' function.
An unauthenticated attacker can exploit this flaw to run arbitrary
code, possibly taken from third-party hosts, subject to the rights
of the web server user id. Note that AppServ under Windows runs with
SYSTEM rights, which means a possible hacker can gain complete control
of the affected host.

Solution :

Unknown at this time.
