Vulnerability Assessment Details

Feedsplitter <= 2006-01-21 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read an invalid XML file with Feedsplitter

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running Feedsplitter, a PHP script for converting
RSS / RDF feeds into HTML.

The version of Feedsplitter installed on the remote host fails to
properly validate the 'format' parameter of the 'feedsplitter.php'
script before using it to parse an arbitrary XML file. An
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this to discover the
contents of XML files or potentially even execute arbitrary PHP code.

In addition, the application can optionally disclose the source of
feeds and may permit for arbitrary PHP code execution through the use
of a malicious feed.
