MODx CMS base_path Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file with MODx CMS

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
remote file include issue.

Description:

The remote web server is running MODx CMS, an open source content
management system.

The version of MODx CMS installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
input to the 'base_path' parameter before using it in the
'manager/media/browser/mcpuk/connectors/php/Commands/Thumbnail.php'
script to include PHP code. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting
is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker can exploit this issue to view
arbitrary files and execute arbitrary code, possibly taken from
third-party hosts, on the remote host.
