PHP Doc System Show Parameter Local File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for show parameter local file include vulnerability in PHP Doc System

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by a
local file inclusion vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running PHP Doc System, a modular, PHP-based system

before using it in a PHP 'include' 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 taken from arbitrary
files on the remote host.
