CodeGrrl Applications Remote File Inclusion Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for remote file inclusion vulnerabilities in CodeGrrl applications

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by a
remote file inclusion vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running at least one of the PHP
applications from CodeGrrl - PHPCalendar, PHPClique, PHPFanBase, or
PHPQuotes. Under certain conditions, these applications fail to
sanitize input to the 'siteurl' parameter of the 'protection.php'
script before using it in a PHP 'include' function. Provided PHP's
'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker can
exploit this issue to view arbitrary files on the remote host and to
execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.
