Loudblog < 0.42 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read Loudblog's config file

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that suffers from
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running Loudblog, a PHP application for publishing
podcasts and similar media files.

The version of Loudblog installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
input to the 'template' parameter of the 'index.php' script before
returning the contents of the file in a dynamic web page. An
unauthenticated attacker can exploit this issue to view arbitrary
files on the affected system subject to the rights of the web
server user id.

In addition, there reportedly is also a local file include flaw
involving the 'language' and 'page' parameters of the
'inc/backend_settings.php'and 'index.php' scripts and a SQL injection
flaw involving the 'id' parameter of the 'podcast.php' script.

Successful exploitation of these issues reportedly requires that PHP's
'magic_quotes_gpc' be disabled.
