Nabopoll path Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for path parameter remote file include vulnerability in Nabopoll

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to a
remote file include attack.

Description :

The remote host is running nabopoll, a web-based voting / survey
software for PHP and MySQL.

The installed version of nabopoll permits remote attackers to control
the 'path' parameter used when including PHP code in the script
'survey.inc.php'. By leveraging this flaw, a possible hacker is able to
view arbitrary files on the remote host and even execute arbitrary PHP
code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.

'permit_url_fopen' is disabled.
