Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to an
information disclosure vulnerability.

input to the 'profile' parameter of the 'rss.php' script of directory
traversal sequences. An unauthenticated remote attacker can be able
to leverage this flaw to read files on the affected host and disclose
sensitive information, such as configuration parameters used by the
application.
