PAJAX < 0.5.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to execute code using PAJAX

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is susceptible to
multiple issues.

Description :

The remote host is running PAJAX, a PHP library for remote
asynchronous objects in Javascript.

The version of PAJAX installed on the remote host fails to validate
input to the 'pajax/pajax_call_dispatcher.php' script before using it
in a PHP 'eval()' function. An unauthenticated attacker can exploit
this flaw to execute arbitrary command on the remote host subject to
the rights of the web server user id.

In addition, the application also reportedly fails to validate input
to classnames before using it in a PHP 'require()' function in
'Pajax.class.php', which permits for local file include attacks.
