Dokeos extAuthSource Parameter Array Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file with Dokeos

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
remote file inclusion attack.

Description :

The remote host is running Dokeos, an open-source, e-learning and
course management web application written in PHP.

The version of Dokeos installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
input to the 'extAuthSource' parameter array before using it to
include PHP code in the 'claroline/inc/claro_init_local.inc.php'
script. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this issue to view
arbitrary files on the remote host or to execute arbitrary PHP code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts.

Note that, while the vulnerability exists in Claroline itself, Dokeos
is affected as well because it includes a vulnerable version of
Claroline.
