Vulnerability Assessment Details
Tries to read /etc/passwd using phpWebFTP
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
local file include issue.
The remote host is running phpWebFTP, a web-based FTP client written
The version of phpWebFTP installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'language' parameter of the
'index.php' script before using it in a PHP 'include()' function. An
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this issue to view
arbitrary files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host,
subject to the rights of the web server user id.
Note that successful exploitation of this issue requires that either
PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting be disabled or the attacker have the
ability to edit files on the remote host.
