viewpage.php arbitrary file reading

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
viewpage.php is vulnerable to an exploit which lets an attacker view any file that the cgi/httpd user has access to.

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

input.

As a result, a possible hacker may use it to read arbitrary files on
the remote host by supplying a bogus value to the 'file' parameter
of this CGI.

Solution : Do not use php-nuke.
