OpenBiblio < 0.5.2 Multiple Local File Include Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file in OpenBiblio

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
multiple local file include issues.

Description :

The remote host is running OpenBiblio, a free, automated library
system written in PHP.

The version of OpenBiblio installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'tab' and 'page' parameters of the
'shared/header.php' and 'shared/help.php' scripts respectively before
using it to include PHP code. An unauthenticated remote attacker may
be able to exploit these issues to view arbitrary files or to execute
arbitrary PHP code on the remote host, subject to the rights of
the web server user id.
