Guppy Request Header Injection Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for request header injection vulnerabilities in Guppy
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP script that allows for
arbitrary code execution and cross-site scripting attacks.
The remote host is running Guppy, a CMS written in PHP.
The remote version of this software does not properly sanitize input
to the Referer and User-Agent HTTP headers before using it in the
'error.php' script. A malicious user can exploit this flaw to inject
arbitrary script and HTML code into a user's browser or, if PHP's
'magic_quotes_gpc' seting is disabled, PHP code to be executed on the
remote host subject to the rights of the web server user id.
