Serendipity serendipity[charset] Parameter Local File Include Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file with Serendipity

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
multiple local file include issues.

Description :

Several scripts included with the version of Serendipity installed on
the remote host fail to sanitize input to the 'serendipity[charset]'
parameter before using it to include PHP code. Provided PHP's
'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may
be able to exploit these issues to view arbitrary files or to execute
arbitrary PHP code on the remote host, subject to the rights of
the web server user id.
