Recommended Posts

Don't know if anyone is using PHPOpenChat, but if so see http://secunia.com/advisories/14600/



Secunia Advisory: SA14600

Release Date: 2005-03-16




Highly critical

Impact: System access


Where: From remote


Solution Status: Unpatched



Software: PHPOpenChat 3.x




Mafia_Boy has reported a vulnerability in PHPOpenChat, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.


Input passed to the "sourcedir" parameter in "contrib/yabbse/poc.php" is not properly verified, before it is used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from external and local resources.


Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled.


The vulnerability has been reported in version 3.0.1 and prior.



Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.


Provided and/or discovered by:

Mafia_Boy, Albania Security Clan.
