MiniBB PathToFiles Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file with MiniBB

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 MiniBB, an open source forum software.

The version of MiniBB installed on the remote host fails to sanitize input to
the 'pathToFiles' parameter before using it in the 'bb_func_txt.php' script.

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.
