Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

It is possible to make the remote host include php files hosted on a
third party server using Ashnews.

A possible hacker may use this flaw to inject arbitrary code in the remote
host and gain a shell with the rights of the web server.

In addition, the application reportedly fails to sanitize the 'id'
parameter before using it in dynamically-generated output, subjecting
users to cross-site scripting attacks.
