Open Conference System fullpath Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to read a local file with OCS
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by remote
file include issues.
The remote host is using Open Conference System, a PHP application for
managing scholarly conference web sites.
The version of Open Conference System installed on the remote host
fails to sanitize input to the 'fullpath' parameter before using it to
include PHP code in the 'include/theme.inc.php' and 'footer.inc.php'
scripts. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit these issues to view
arbitrary files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host,
subject to the rights of the web server user id.
