PHP-Fusion Database Backup Disclosure

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks the version of the remote PHP-Fusion

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to
information disclosure.

Description :

A vulnerability exists in the remote version of PHP-Fusion that may
permit a possible hacker to obtain a dump of the remote database. PHP-Fusion
has the ability to create database backups and store them on the web
server, in the directory '/fusion_admin/db_backups/'. Since there is
no access control on that directory, a possible hacker may guess the name of
a backuped database and download it.

the backup directory.
