Joomla! / Mambo Component Multiple Parameter Local File Include Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 43636
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by multiple local file include vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote host contains a component for Joomla! or Mambo that fails to sanitize user-supplied input to multiple parameters in a GET request before using it to include PHP code. Regardless of the PHP 'register_globals' setting, an unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue to disclose arbitrary files or possibly execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host, subject to the privileges of the web server user ID.

Solution

Contact the vendor of each affected component to see if an upgrade is available or else disable it.
