PunBB language Paramater Local File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file with PunBB

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
local file include issue.

Description:

The version of PunBB installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
input to the 'language' parameter before storing it in the
'register.php' script as a user's preferred language setting. By
registering with a specially-crafted value, a possible hacker can leverage
this issue to view arbitrary files and possibly execute arbitrary code
on the affected host.
