PHProjekt <= 5.1 Multiple Remote File Include Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file using PHProjekt

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to
multiple remote file include attacks.

Description :

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/' 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.

Solution :

Upgrade to PHProjekt version 5.1.1 or later.

Network Security Threat Level:

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.0
