XOOPS < 2.0.9.4 include/common.php nocommon Parameter Local File Inclusion

Medium

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is vulnerable to local file include attacks.

Description

The version of XOOPS installed on the remote host allows an unauthenticated attacker to skip processing of the application's 'include/common.php' script and thereby to gain control of the variables '$xoopsConfig[language]' and '$xoopsConfig[theme_set]', which are used by various scripts to include PHP code from other files. Successful exploitation of these issues requires that PHP's 'register_globals' setting be enabled and can be used to view arbitrary files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host, subject to the privileges of the web server user ID.

Solution

Upgrade to version 2.0.9.4 or higher.
