GLSA-200605-04 : phpWebSite: Local file inclusion

High Nessus Plugin ID 21319


The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.


The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200605-04 (phpWebSite: Local file inclusion)

rgod has reported that the 'hub_dir' parameter in 'index.php' isn't properly verified. When 'magic_quotes_gpc' is disabled, this can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local ressources.
Impact :

If 'magic_quotes_gpc' is disabled, which is not the default on Gentoo Linux, a remote attacker could exploit this issue to include and execute PHP scripts from local ressources with the rights of the user running the web server, or to disclose sensitive information and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All phpWebSite users should upgrade to the latest available version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-apps/phpwebsite-0.10.2'
