RCBlog post Parameter Directory Traversal Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for directory transversal in RCBlog index.php script

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to directory
traversal attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running RCBlog, a blog written in PHP.

The remote version of this software fails to sanitize user-supplied
input to the 'post' parameter of the 'index.php' script. A possible hacker
can use this to access arbitrary files on the remote host provided
PHP's 'magic_quotes' setting is disabled or, regardless of that
setting, files with a '.txt' extension such as those used by the
application to store administrative credentials.
