phpSysInfo < 2.4.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in phpSysInfo < 2.4.1

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running phpSysInfo, a PHP application that parses
the /proc entries on Linux/Unix systems and displays them in HTML.

The installed version of phpSysInfo on the remote host has a design
flaw in its globalization layer such that the script's variables can
be overwritten independent of PHP's 'register_globals' setting. By
exploiting this issue, a possible hacker may be able to read arbitrary files
on the remote host (if PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is off) and
even execute arbitrary PHP code, both subject to the rights of the
web server user id.

In addition, the application fails to sanitize user-supplied input
before using it in dynamically-generated pages, which can be used to
conduct cross-site scripting and HTTP response splitting attacks.

Solution :

Upgrade to phpSysInfo 2.4.1 or later.
