SquirrelMail plugins Parameter Local File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read file using SquirrelMail

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 SquirrelMail installed on the remote fails to properly
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'tests' parameter of the
'functions/test.php' script before using it in a PHP
'include_once()' function. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting
is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this
issue to view arbitrary files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the
remote host, subject to the rights of the web server user id.
