Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
an arbitrary file upload vulnerability.

version of FCKeditor that is enabled by default and permits an
unauthenticated attacker to upload arbitrary files containing, say,
PHP code, and then to execute them subject to the rights of the
web server user id.
