FreeBSD : WebCalendar -- remote file inclusion vulnerability (60f8fe7b-3cfb-11da-baa2-0004614cc33d)

High Nessus Plugin ID 21436


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


WebCalendar is proven vulnerable to a remote file inclusion vulnerability. The send_reminders.php does not properly verify the 'includedir' parameter, giving remote attackers the possibility to include local and remote files. These files can be used by the attacker to gain access to the system.


Update the affected package.
