Nucleus CMS DIR_LIBS Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file using Nucleus CMS

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to remote
file inclusion attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running Nucleus CMS, an open-source content
management system.

The version of Nucleus CMS installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'DIR_LIBS' parameter before using it in a PHP
include() function in the 'nucleus/libs/PLUGINADMIN.php' script.
Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this flaw to view
arbitrary files on the remote host or to execute arbitrary PHP code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts.
