Exhibit Engine toroot Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file with Exhibit Engine

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
remote file include issue.

Description:

The remote web server is running Exhibit Engine, a PHP based photo
gallery management system.

The version of Exhibit Engine installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'toroot' parameter before using it in the
'styles.php' script to include PHP code. Provided PHP's
'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker can
exploit this issue to view arbitrary files and execute arbitrary code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts, on the remote host.

Solution :

No patches or upgrades have been reported by the vendor at this time.

Network Security Threat Level:

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.6
(AV:R/AC:H/Au:NR/C:P/I:P/A:P/B:N)
