Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200701-11] Kronolith: Local file inclusion

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Kronolith: Local file inclusion

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-11
(Kronolith: Local file inclusion)


Kronolith contains a mistake in lib/FBView.php where a raw, unfiltered
string is used instead of a sanitized string to view local files.

Impact

An authenticated attacker could craft an HTTP GET request that uses
directory traversal techniques to execute any file on the web server as
PHP code, which could permit information disclosure or arbitrary code
execution with the rights of the user running the PHP application
(usually the webserver user).

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
