Vulnerability Assessment Details
Tries to read a local file using PHProjekt
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to
multiple remote file include attacks.
The remote host is running PHProjekt, an open-source groupware suite
written in PHP.
The version of PHProjekt installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'path_pre' parameter of the
'lib/specialdays.php' script as well as the 'lib_path' parameter of
the 'lib/dbman_filter.inc.php' script before using it to include PHP
code. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an
unauthenticated attacker can exploit these flaws to view arbitrary
files on the remote host or to execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly
taken from third-party hosts.
