Atomic Photo Album apa_module_basedir Variable File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for apa_module_basedir variable file include vulnerability in Atomic Photo Album

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is vulnerable to a
remote file inclusion attack.

Description :

The remote host is running Atomic Photo Album, a free, PHP-based photo
gallery.

The installed version of Atomic Photo Album permits remote attackers to
control the 'apa_module_basedir' variable used when including PHP code
in the 'apa_phpinclude.inc.php' script. By leveraging this flaw, an
attacker may be able to view arbitrary files on the remote host and
execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.

that 'permit_url_fopen' is disabled.
