Plogger config Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for config parameter remote file include vulnerability in Plogger
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to a
remote file inclusion vulnerability.
The remote host appears to be running Plogger, an open-source photo
gallery written in PHP.
The version of Plogger installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'config[basedir]' parameter of the
'admin/plog-admin-functions.php' script before using it in a PHP
'require_once' function. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is
enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this flaw
to read arbitrary files on the remote host and or run arbitrary code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts, subject to the rights of
the web server user id.
