phpWebSite hub_dir Parameter Local File Include Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to read /etc/passwd using phpWebSite

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
local file include issue.

Description :

The version of phpWebSite installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'hub_dir' parameter of the 'index.php' script
before using it in a PHP 'include()' function. Provided PHP's
'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may
be able to exploit this issue to view arbitrary files on the remote
host or to execute arbitrary PHP code, subject to the rights of
the web server user id.
