Vulnerability Assessment Details
Checks for currentlang parameter local file include vulnerability in Dragonfly CMS
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
local file include issue.
The remote host appears to be running Dragonfly / CPG-Nuke CMS, a
content management system written in PHP.
The installed version of Dragonfly / CPG-Nuke CMS fails to validate
user input to the 'getlang' parameter as well as the 'installlang'
cookie before using them in the 'install.php' script in PHP
'require()' functions. An unauthenticated attacker can leverage this
issue to view arbitrary files on the remote host and possibly to
execute arbitrary PHP code taken from files on the remote host, both
subject to the rights of the web server user id.
Note that successful exploitation is not affected by PHP's
'register_globals' and 'magic_quotes_gpc' settings.
