Plogger config Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for config parameter remote file include vulnerability in Plogger

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to a
remote file inclusion vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running Plogger, an open-source photo
gallery written in PHP.

The version of Plogger installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'config[basedir]' parameter of the
'admin/plog-admin-functions.php' script before using it in a PHP
'require_once' function. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is
enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this flaw
to read arbitrary files on the remote host and or run arbitrary code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts, subject to the rights of
the web server user id.

Upgrade to Plogger 2.1 or later.
