Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that suffers from
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

In addition, the profile.php script enables anyone to call the
change_pass action while specifying the id of an existing user to set
their password to NULL, effectively shutting them out of the system.
