Contenido cfg Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for cfg parameter remote file include vulnerability in Contenido
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to a
remote file inclusion vulnerability.
The remote host appears to be running Contenido, an open-source
content management system written in PHP.
The version of Contenido installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'cfg[path][contenido]' and 'cfg[path][classes]'
parameters of the 'contenido/classes/class.inuse.php' script before
using it in a PHP 'require_once' function. Provided PHP's
'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may
be able to exploit this flaw to read arbitrary files on the remote
host and or run arbitrary code, possibly taken from third-party hosts,
subject to the rights of the web server user id.
