phpMyFAQ < 1.6.10 File Upload Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to bypass authentication with phpMyFAQ's ImageManager plugin

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
privilege escalation issues.

Description :

The installation of phpMyFAQ on the remote host allows for bypassing
authentication or escalating rights via the 'admin/attachment.php'
and 'admin/editor/tests/ImageManager/images.php' scripts. By
leveraging these issues, a remote attacker can upload files, possibly
even containing arbitary code, subject to the rights of the web
server user id.

Note that successful exploitation of these issues requires that PHP's
'register_globals' setting be enabled.
