Coppermine Photo Gallery < 1.4.5 index.php file Parameter Local File Inclusion
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3520
SynopsisThe remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a local file include issue.
DescriptionThe version of Coppermine Gallery installed on the remote host fails to properly sanitize input to the 'file' parameter of the 'index.php' script before using it in a PHP 'include_once()' function. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this issue to view arbitrary files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host, subject to the privileges of the web server user ID.
SolutionUpgrade to version 1.4.5 or higher.
