FlatNuke id Parameter Directory Traversal Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for id parameter directory traversal vulnerability in FlatNuke

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by a
directory traversal vulnerability.

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 fails to
remove directory traversal sequences user input to the 'id' parameter
of the 'index.php' script. Provided PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting
is enabled, a possible hacker can leverage this flaw to read arbitrary files
on the remote host subject to the rights of the web server user
id.
