Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
privilege escalation issues.

The installation of phpMyFAQ on the remote host permits for bypassing
authentication or escalating rights via the 'admin/attachment.php'
and 'admin/editor/tests/ImageManager/images.php' scripts. By
leveraging these issues, a remote attacker can upload files, possibly
even containing arbitary code, subject to the rights of the web
server user id.
