Siteframe LOCAL_PATH Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for LOCAL_PATH remote file include vulnerability in Siteframe

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to a remote
file include attack.

Description :

The remote host is running Siteframe, an open-source content
management system using PHP and MySQL.

The installed version of Siteframe does not properly sanitize the
'LOCAL_PATH' parameter of the 'siteframe.php' script before using it
to include files. By leveraging this flaw, a possible hacker is able to
view arbitrary files on the remote host and even execute arbitrary PHP
code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.
