Exponent CMS view Parameter Local File Include Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to read a local file in Exponent CMS

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to a
local file include issue.

Description :

The remote host is running Exponent CMS, an open-source content
management system written in PHP.

The version of Exponent CMS installed on the remote host fails to
properly sanitize user-supplied input to the 'view' parameter before
using it in the 'modules/calendarmodule/class.php' script to include
PHP code as part of its templating system. Regardless of PHP's
'magic_quotes_gpc' and 'register_globals' settings, an unauthenticated
remote attacker may be able to exploit this issue to view arbitrary
files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host, subject to
the rights of the web server user id.
