phpWebThings editor_insert_bottom Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to read a local file with phpWebThings

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

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


The remote web server is running phpWebThings, a PHP based photo
gallery management system.

The version of phpWebThings installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'editor_insert_bottom' parameter before using it
in the 'core/editor.php' script to include PHP code. Provided PHP's
'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker can
exploit this issue to view arbitrary files and execute arbitrary code,
possibly taken from third-party hosts, on the remote host.
