Vulnerability Assessment Details
Tries to read a file using Gallery stepOrder parameter
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
multiple local file include flaws.
The remote host is running Gallery, a web-based photo album
application written in PHP.
The version of Gallery installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
input to the 'stepOrder' parameter of the 'upgrade/index.php' and
'install/index.php' scripts before using it in a PHP 'require()'
function. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this
issue to view arbitrary files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the
affect host provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled.
See also :
Disable PHP's 'register_globals' setting, delete the application's
'upgrade/index.php' script, or upgrade to Gallery version 2.0.4 /
2.1-RC-2a or later.
