CMS Made Simple nls Parameter File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for nls parameter file include vulnerability in CMS Made Simple

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is vulnerable to
remote file include attacks.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running CMS Made Simple, a content
management system written in PHP.

The version of CMS Made Simple installed on the remote host fails to
properly sanitize user-supplied input to the 'nls' parameter of the
'admin/lang.php' script before using it to include PHP code. By
leveraging this flaw, a possible hacker may be able to view arbitrary files
on the remote host and execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from
third-party hosts.
