phpDocumentor <= 1.3.0 RC4 Local And Remote File Inclusion Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check if phpDocumentor is vulnerable to remote file inclusion flaws

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to file
inclusion flaws.

Description :

phpDocumentor is a automatic documentation generator for PHP.

The remote host appears to be running the web-interface of
phpDocumentor.

This version does not properly sanitize user input in the
'file_dialog.php' file and a test file called 'bug-559668.php' It is
possible for a possible hacker to include remote files and execute arbitrary
commands on the remote system, and display the content of sensitive
files.

This flaw is exploitable if PHP's 'register_globals' setting is
enabled.
