Claroline and file include

claroline-ldapinc-casprocessinc-file-include (26280) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk


Claroline could allow a remote attacker to include malicious PHP files. If register_globals is enabled, a remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the claroline/auth/extauth/drivers/ script using the 'clarolineRepositorySys' parameter or to the claroline/auth/extauth/ script using the 'claro_CasLibPath' parameter to specify a malicious PHP file from a remote or the local system, which would allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system.
