Vulnerability Assessment Details
Tries to read a file using PHP iCalendar
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by a
local file include flaw.
The remote host appears to be running PHP iCalendar, a web-based iCal
file viewer / parser written in PHP.
The version of PHP iCalendar installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to cookie data normally used to store language and
template user preferences before using it in a PHP 'include()'
function in 'functions/init.inc.php'. An unauthenticated attacker can
exploit this issue to view arbitrary files and possibly to execute
arbitrary PHP code on the affected host.
Note that successful exploitation of this issue does not depend on the
setting of PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc'. It does, though, require that an
attacker be able to write to files on the remote host, perhaps by
injection into the web server's error log.
