phpMyAgenda rootagenda Parameter File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for a possible file inclusion flaw in phpMyAgenda

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to
remote and local file inclusions attacks.

Description :

phpMyAgenda is installed on the remote system. It's an open source
event management system written in PHP.

The application does not sanitize the 'rootagenda' parameter in some
of its files. This may permit a possible hacker to include arbitrary files,
possibly taken from third-party systems, and parse them with
rights of the account under which the web server operates.

Successful exploitation of this issue requires that PHP's
'register_globals' setting be enabled.
