Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
local file include issue.
The remote host is running phpWebFTP, a web-based FTP client written
The version of phpWebFTP installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'language' parameter of the
'index.php' script before using it in a PHP 'include()' function. An
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this issue to view
arbitrary files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host,
