CuteNews archive Parameter Information Disclosure Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a file via archive parameter of CuteNews

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that permits reading of
arbitrary files.

Description :

The version of CuteNews installed on the remote host fails to properly
sanitize the 'archive' parameter before using it to read a news file
and return it. An unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to
leverage this issue to read arbitrary files on the remote host subject
to permissions of the web server user id.

Note that successful exploitation of this issue requires that PHP's
'register_globals' setting be enabled.
