|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: phpWebSite: Local file inclusion (GLSA 200605-04)
Date: May 02, 2006
Remote attackers can include local files which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
phpWebSite provides a complete web site content management system.
Vulnerable: < 0.10.2
Unaffected: >= 0.10.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
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.
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All phpWebSite users should upgrade to the latest available version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpwebsite-0.10.2"
