PHProjekt path_pre Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read /etc/passwd using PHProjekt

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is susceptible to
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/authform.inc.php' script before using it in a PHP
'include_once()' function. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting
is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this
issue to view arbitrary files on the remote host or to execute
arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.
