Owl Intranet Engine xrms_file_root Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read /etc/passwd via Owl

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that suffers from a remote
file include vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running Owl Intranet Engine, a web-based document
management system written in PHP.

The version of Owl Intranet Engine on the remote host fails to
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'xrms_file_root' parameter of the
'lib/OWL_API.php' script before using it in a PHP 'require_once'
function. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this
issue to view arbitrary files on the remote host or to execute
arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.
