Atomic Photo Album apa_module_basedir Variable File Include Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for apa_module_basedir variable file include vulnerability in Atomic Photo Album
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP script that is vulnerable to a
remote file inclusion attack.
The remote host is running Atomic Photo Album, a free, PHP-based photo
The installed version of Atomic Photo Album allows remote attackers to
control the 'apa_module_basedir' variable used when including PHP code
in the 'apa_phpinclude.inc.php' script. By leveraging this flaw, an
attacker may be able to view arbitrary files on the remote host and
execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.
