OpenEMR fileroot Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file using OpenEMR

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 OpenEMR, a web-based medical records
application written in PHP.

The version of OpenEMR installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
input to the 'fileroot' parameter before using it in the
'contrib/forms/evaluation/C_FormEvaluation.class.php' script to
include PHP code. 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.

Solution :

Disable PHP's 'register_globals' setting as the application does not
require it.
