Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected
by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote version of PunBB contains a flaw in its template system
that can be exploited to read arbitrary local files or, if a possible hacker
can upload a specially-crafted avatar, to execute arbitrary PHP code.

In addition, the application fails to sanitize the 'temp' parameter of
the 'profile.php' script before using it in a database query, which
permits for SQL injection attacks.
