Phpauction <= 2.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in Phpauction <= 2.5

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running Phpauction or one of its affiliate
versions, such as Web2035 Auction. Phpauction is a web-based auction
system written in PHP.

The version of Phpauction on the remote host suffers from multiple
flaws :

- Remote Code Execution
A possible hacker can control the 'lan' variable used to
include PHP code in the 'index.php' and 'admin/index.php'
scripts, which _may_ allow him to view arbitrary files
on the remote host and execute arbitrary PHP code,
possibly even taken from third-party hosts.

- Authentication Bypass
By setting the cookie 'PHPAUCTION_RM_ID' to the id of an
existing user, a possible hacker can bypass authentication.

- SQL Injection
The application does not properly sanitize user-supplied
input to the 'category' parameter of the 'adsearch.php'
script before using it in database queries.

- Multiple Cross-Site Scripting Flaws
The application fails to sanitize user-supplied input
to several scripts before using it in dynamically-
generated pages, which allows for cross-site scripting
