Limbo CMS Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in Limbo

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
numerous vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running Limbo CMS, a content-management system
written in PHP.

The remote version of this software is vulnerable to several flaws
including :

- If register_globals is off and Limbo is configured to use a MySQL
backend, then an SQL injection is possible due to improper
sanitization of the '_SERVER[REMOTE_ADDR]' parameter.
- The installation path is revealed when the '',
'', and '' files are reqeusted when
PHP's 'display_errors' setting is enabled.
- An XSS attack is possible when the Stats module is used due to
improper sanitization of the '_SERVER[REMOTE_ADDR]' parameter.
- Arbitrary PHP files can be retrieved via the 'index2.php' script
due to improper sanitation of the 'option' parameter.
- A possible hacker can run arbitrary system commands on the remote
system via a combination of the SQL injection and directory
transversal attacks.
