A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the resources/includes/popp.config.loader.inc.php script using the "cfg['popphoto_base_path']" variable to specify a malicious PHP file from a remote system, which would allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system.
