FlatNuke < 2.5.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in FlatNuke < 2.5.6

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 FlatNuke, a content management system
written in PHP and using flat files rather than a database for its
storage.

The version of FlatNuke installed on the remote host suffers from
several flaws:

- Arbitrary PHP Code Execution Vulnerability
The application fails to remove newlines from a user's
registration information and stores it as a PHP file with
a known path. A possible hacker can leverage this flaw to
execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host subject to
the rights of the web server userid.

- Multiple Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities
Various scripts do not sanitize user-supplied input
through several parameters before using it in dynamically
generated pages, which can be exploited by attackers to
launch cross-site scripting attacks against the affected
application.
