Synopsis :

The remote web server hosts a PHP script that is prone to a local file
inclusion attack.

Description :

The version of the RWCards component for Joomla! installed on the
remote host is affected by a remote file inclusion vulnerability because
it fails to properly sanitize user input to the
'mosConfig_absolute_path' parameter of rwcards.advancedate.php. An
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this issue to view
arbitrary files or execute arbitrary code, possibly taken from
third-party hosts, on the remote host.
