phpRaid root_path file include

phpraid-rootpath-file-include (26346) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk


phpRaid could allow a remote attacker to include malicious PHP files. If the phpBB portal is active, a remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the auth/auth_phpbb.php or auth/auth_phpbb script, using the 'phpbb_root_path' parameter or if the SMF portal is active, to the auth/auth.php or auth/auth_SMF script using the 'smf_root_path' parameter to specify a malicious PHP file from a remote system, which would allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system.
