Site@School cmsdir Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to read a local file with Site@School
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is susceptible
to multiple remote file inclusion attacks.
The remote host is running Site@School, an open-source, PHP-based,
content management system intended for primary schools.
The version of Site@School installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'cmsdir' parameter before using it to include
PHP code in several scripts. Provided PHP's 'register_globals'
setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit
this issue to view arbitrary files on the remote host or to execute
arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.
