phpMyFAQ action parameter arbitrary file disclosure vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check the version of phpMyFAQ

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that permits information
disclosure of local files.

Description :

The version of phpMyFAQ on the remote host contains a flaw that may lead
to an unauthorized information disclosure. The problem is that user
input passed to the 'action' parameter is not properly verified before
being used to include files, which could permit an remote attacker to
view any accessible file on the system, resulting in a loss of
confidentiality.
