phpAlbum data_dir Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read /etc/passwd using phpAlbum

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 phpAlbum, an open-source web photo gallery
written in PHP.

The version of phpAlbum installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'data_dir' parameter of the 'language.php'
script before using it in a PHP 'include()' function. 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.
