xoops nocommon Parameter Local File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file using Xoops

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is vulnerable to
local file include attacks.

Description :

The version of xoops installed on the remote host permits an
unauthenticated attacker to skip processing of the application's
'include/common.php' script and thereby to gain control of the
variables '$xoopsConfig[language]' and '$xoopsConfig[theme_set]',
which are used by various scripts to include PHP code from other
files. Successful exploitation of these issues requires that PHP's
'register_globals' setting be enabled and can be used to view
arbitrary files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host,
subject to the rights of the web server user id.
