CMS Made Simple < 1.8.1 Local File Include Vulnerability

High

Synopsis

The remote web server is running a PHP application that is affected by a local file include vulnerability.

Description

The remote host is running CMS Made Simple, a web-based content-management application written in PHP.

Versions of CMS Made Simple earlier than 1.8.1 are potentially affected by a local file include vulnerability because the application fails to properly sanitize user supplied input to the 'default_lang' parameter of the 'translation.functions.php' script. A remote, authenticated attacker, exploiting this flaw could execute arbitrary code subject to the privileges of the user running the affected web server.

Solution

Upgrade to CMS Made Simple 1.8.1 or later.
