Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is running a copy of PHP-Nuke.

Given the insecurity history of this package, the Nessus
team recommends that you do not use it but
use something else instead, as security was clearly
not in the mind of the persons who wrote it.

The author of PHP-Nuke (Francisco Burzi) even started to rewrite
the program from scratch, given the huge number of vulnerabilities
(http://www.phpnuke.org/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=5640)

Solution : De-install this package and use something else
