gCards Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for directory transversal in gCards index.php script

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running gCards, a free electronic greeting card
system written in PHP.

The installed version of gCards fails to sanitize user input to the
'setLang' parameter in the 'inc/setLang.php' script which is called by
'index.php'. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this
issue to read arbitrary local files or execute code from local files
subject to the permissions of the web server user id.

There are also reportedly other flaws in the installed application,
including a directory traversal issue that permits reading of local
files as well as a SQL injection and a cross-site scripting issue.
