Help Center Live module.php local file include flaw

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks HCL local file include flaw

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
local file file include vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running Help Center Live, a help desk tool written in
PHP.

The remote version of Help Center Live fails to sanitize input to the
'file' parameter of the 'module.php' script before using it in a PHP
include_once() function. Regardless of PHP's 'register_globals'
setting, an unauthenticated attacker can exploit this issue to read
files and possibly execute arbitrary PHP code on the affected host
subject to the rights of the web server user id.

Solution :

Unknown at this time.
