PostNuke PNphpBB2 phpbb_root_path Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to read a file with PNphpBB2 Module
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to a remote
file include vulnerability.
The installation of PostNuke on the remote host includes a version of
the PNphpBB2 module that fails to sanitize input to the
'phpbb_root_path' parameter of the 'includes/functions_admin.php'
script before using it in a PHP 'include_once()' function. Provided
PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated
attacker may be able to exploit this issue to view arbitrary files or
to execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.
