Limbo com_contact File Upload Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to upload a file with PHP code in Limbo CMS

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that permits uploading
of arbitrary files.

Description :

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

The 'com_contact' component of the version of Limbo installed on the
remote host permits an unauthenticated remote attacker to upload
arbitrary files to a known directory within the web server's document
root. Provided PHP's 'file_uploads' setting is enabled, which is true
by default, this flaw can be exploited to execute arbitrary code on
the affected host, subject to the rights of the web server user
