phpSysInfo < 2.4.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in phpSysInfo < 2.4.1
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
The remote host is running phpSysInfo, a PHP application that parses
the /proc entries on Linux/Unix systems and displays them in HTML.
The installed version of phpSysInfo on the remote host has a design
flaw in its globalization layer such that the script's variables can
be overwritten independent of PHP's 'register_globals' setting. By
exploiting this issue, a possible hacker may be able to read arbitrary files
on the remote host (if PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is off) and
even execute arbitrary PHP code, both subject to the rights of the
web server user id.
In addition, the application fails to sanitize user-supplied input
before using it in dynamically-generated pages, which can be used to
conduct cross-site scripting and HTTP response splitting attacks.
