RunCMS include/common.php xoopsOption Parameter Local File Inclusion
High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4295
SynopsisThe remote web server contains a PHP application that is susceptible to a local file inclusion attack.
DescriptionThe remote web server contains a PHP application that is susceptible to a local file inclusion attack. The remote host appears to be running RunCMS, a content-management system written in PHP. The version of RunCMS installed on the remote host fails to sanitize user input to the 'xoopsOption[pagetype]' parameter before using it to include PHP code in 'include/common.php'. Regardless of PHP's 'register_globals' setting, an unauthenticated remote 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.
SolutionNo solution is known at this time.
