Squirrelcart cart_isp_root Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file using Squirrelcart

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
remote file include issue.

Description :

The remote host is running Squirrelcart, a shopping cart program
written in PHP.

The version of Squirrelcart installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'cart_isp_root' parameter of the
'cart_content.php' script before using it to include PHP code.
Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this issue to view
arbitrary files on the remote host or to execute arbitrary PHP code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts.
