osCommerce readme_file Parameter File Disclosure Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a file with osCommerce

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
file disclosure vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running osCommerce, an open-source e-commerce
system.

The osCommerce installation on the remote host has a supplementary
script, 'extras/update.php', that fails to validate user-supplied
input to the 'readme_file' parameter before using that to display a
file. A possible hacker can exploit this flaw to read arbitrary files on
the remote host, such as the '.htaccess' file used to protect the
admin directory.
