vCard match Parameter Remote File Inclusion Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for match parameter remote file inclusion vulnerability in vCard

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to a remote
file include vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running vCard, a web-based electronic
postcard application from Belchior Foundry and written in PHP.

The version of vCard installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
the 'match' parameter before using it in the 'admin/define.inc.php'
script to read other files. By leveraging this flaw, an
unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute script files from
third-party hosts.

Solution :

Restrict access to the vCard's 'admin' directory using, say, a
.htaccess file.

Network Security Threat Level:

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6
