Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: phpWebSite: Local file inclusion (GLSA 200605-04)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: May 02, 2006
Bug(s): #130295
ID: 200605-04

Synopsis

Remote attackers can include local files which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

phpWebSite provides a complete web site content management system.

Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/phpwebsite
Vulnerable: < 0.10.2
Unaffected: >= 0.10.2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

rgod has reported that the "hub_dir" parameter in "index.php" isn't properly verified. When "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled, this can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local ressources.

Impact

If "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled, which is not the default on Gentoo Linux, a remote attacker could exploit this issue to include and execute PHP scripts from local ressources with the rights of the user running the web server, or to disclose sensitive information and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All phpWebSite users should upgrade to the latest available version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpwebsite-0.10.2"


References

CVE-2006-1819
