PHP iCalendar Remote File Inclusion Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for remote file inclusion vulnerability in PHP iCalendar

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to a remote
file include vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running PHP iCalendar, a web-based iCal
file viewer / parser written in PHP.

The version of PHP icalendar installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize the 'phpicalendar' cookie before using it in 'index.php' to
include PHP code from a separate file. By leveraging this flaw, an
unauthenticated attacker may be able to view arbitrary files on the
remote host and execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from
third-party hosts. Successful exploitation requires that PHP's
'magic_quotes' setting be disabled, that its 'allow_url_fopen' setting
be enabled, or that a possible hacker be able to place PHP files on the
remote host.
