RCBlog post Parameter Directory Traversal Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for directory transversal in RCBlog index.php script

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to directory
traversal attacks.

input to the 'post' parameter of the 'index.php' script. A possible hacker
can use this to access arbitrary files on the remote host provided
PHP's 'magic_quotes' setting is disabled or, regardless of that
setting, files with a '.txt' extension such as those used by the
application to store administrative credentials.
