Vulnerability Assessment Details

phpwcms spaw_root Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file using phpwcms

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is susceptible
to remote file inclusion attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running phpwcms, an open-source content management
system written in PHP.

The version of phpwcms installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'spaw_root' parameter before using it in
PHP include() functions in the
'include/inc_ext/spaw/spaw_control.class.php' script. Provided PHP's
'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may
be able to exploit this flaw to view arbitrary files on the remote
host or to execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party
hosts.
