PmWiki < 2.1 beta 21 Multiple Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in PmWiki < 2.1 beta 21

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 PmWiki, an open-source Wiki written in PHP.

The version of PmWiki installed on the remote host allows attackers to
overwrite global variables if run under PHP 5 with 'register_globals'
enabled. For example, a possible hacker can exploit this issue to overwrite
the 'FarmD' variable before it's used in a PHP 'include()' function in
the 'pmwiki.php' script, which can allow him to view arbitrary files
on the remote host and even execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken
from third-party hosts.
