TinyPHPForum uname parameter file include
|tinyphpforum-uname-file-include (26881)||Medium Risk|
TinyPHPForum could allow a remote attacker to include arbitrary files from the local system. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the profile.php containing "dot dot" sequences (/../) in the 'uname' parameter and appended with a NULL byte character (%00) to specify a known file from the local system, which could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code or view arbitrary files on the system.
Note: In order to exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code, the attacker would first be required to upload a malicious file or inject arbitrary commands into an existing file.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
