Serendipity serendipity[charset] Parameter Local File Inclusion

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3835


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


Several scripts included with the version of Serendipity installed on the remote host fail to sanitize input to the 'serendipity[charset]' parameter before using it to include PHP code. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit these issues to view arbitrary files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host, subject to the privileges of the web server user IS.


No solution is known at this time.
