Dokeos < 1.6.4 / 2.0.3 Remote File Include Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to read /etc/passwd using Dokeos

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is running Dokeos, an open-source, e-learning and
course management web application written in PHP.

The version of Dokeos installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to several parameters before using it in several
scripts to include PHP code from other files. Provided PHP's
'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may
be able to exploit these issues to view arbitrary files on the remote
host or to execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party
