phpLDAPadmin custom_welcome_page Parameter File Include Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for custom_welcome_page parameter file include vulnerability in phpLDAPadmin
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
remote file include issue.
The remote host appears to be running phpLDAPadmin, a PHP-based LDAP
The version of phpLDAPadmin installed on the remote host fails to
properly sanitize user-supplied input to the 'custom_welcome_page'
parameter of the 'welcome.php' script before using it to include PHP
code. By leveraging this flaw, a possible hacker may be able to view
arbitrary files on the remote host and execute arbitrary PHP code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts.
