Owl Intranet Engine xrms_file_root Parameter Remote File Inclusion

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3465


The remote web server contains a PHP script that suffers from a remote file include vulnerability.


The remote host is running Owl Intranet Engine, a web-based document management system written in PHP. The version of Owl Intranet Engine on the remote host fails to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'xrms_file_root' parameter of the 'lib/OWL_API.php' script before using it in a PHP 'require_once' function. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this issue to view arbitrary files on the remote host or to execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.


No solution is known at this time.
