PHP Advanced Transfer Manager <= 1.30 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in PHP Advanced Transfer Manager <= 1.30

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script which suffers from cross
site scripting and information disclosure vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of PHP Advanced Transfer Manager on the remote host
suffers from multiple information disclosure and cross-site scripting
flaws. For example, by calling a text or HTML viewer directly, an
unauthenticated attacker can view arbitrary files, provided PHP's
'register_globals' setting is enabled. In addition, it may permit
anyone to directly retrieve users' configuration files, with encrypted
password hashes as well as the application's 'test.php' script, which
reveals information about the configuration of PHP on the remote host.
And finally, it fails to adequately filter arbitrary HTML and script
code before using it in dynamically generated pages.

Solution :

Disable PHP's 'register_globals' setting, remove the 'test.php'
script, and prevent direct access to the 'users' directory.
