Stadtaus Form Mail < 2.4 Remote File Inclusion

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2673


The remote host is vulnerable to an arbitrary 'command insertion' flaw.


The remote host is running the Stadtaus PHP Form Mail script. This script is used to send form information to an email address. This version of Form Mail is vulnerable to a flaw where incorrect parsing of the script_root parameter of the script can lead to arbitrary code being sent to the 'include()' function call. A successful attack would give the attacker the ability to execute arbitrary code on the target server.


Upgrade to Form Mail 2.4 or higher.
