RunCms bbPath Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for bbPath parameter remote file include vulnerability in RunCms

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is susceptible
to remote file include attacks.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running RunCms, a content-management
system written in PHP.

The installed version of RunCms fails to validate user input to the
'bbPath' parameter of two scripts. An unauthenticated attacker may be
able to leverage this issue to view arbitrary files on the remote host
or to execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party
hosts.

Note that successful exploitation requires that PHP's
'register_globals' setting be enabled.
