Loudblog backend_settings.php Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for remote file include vulnerability in Loudblog's backend_settings.php

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to a remote
file include vulnerability.

Description :

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

The installed version of Loudblog fails to validate user input to the
'GLOBALS[path]' and 'language' parameters before using them in the
'loudblog/inc/backend_settings.php' script in a PHP 'include'
function. Provide PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an
unauthenticated attacker can exploit this flaw to run arbitrary code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts, subject to the rights of
the web server user id.
