phpMyConferences lvc_include_dir Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to read a local file with phpMyConferences
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to a remote
file include issue.
The remote host is using phpMyConferences, a conference management
system written in PHP.
The version of phpMyConferences installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'lvc_include_dir' parameter before using it to
include PHP code in the 'common/visiteurs/include/menus.inc.php'
script. 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 on the remote host,
subject to the rights of the web server user id.
