Vulnerability Assessment Details

Multiple Vulnerabilities in yappa-ng < 2.3.2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in yappa-ng < 2.3.2

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains several PHP scripts that are prone to
multiple flaws, including arbitrary file inclusion.

Description :

The version of yappa-ng installed on the remote host is prone to
multiple file include and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities due to
its failure to sanitize user-supplied script input when calling
various include scripts directly.

By exploiting the file include vulnerabilities, a possible hacker can read
arbitrary files on the remote host and possibly even run arbitrary
code, subject to the rights of the web server process. And by
exploiting the cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, he can cause
arbitrary script and HTML code to be run in a user's browser within
the context of the affected web site.
