phpBB Component phpbb_root_path Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file using the phpBB Component

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to
remote file include attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running the phpBB component for Mambo, a web-based
bulletin board.

The version of the phpBB component for Mambo installed on the remote
host fails to sanitize input to the 'phpbb_root_path' parameter of the
'download.php' and other scripts before using it to include PHP code.
Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit these flaws to view
arbitrary files on the remote host or to execute arbitrary PHP code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts.
