Sitemap component for Mambo sitemap.xml.php file include
|sitemap-sitemapxml-file-include (27723)||Medium Risk|
The Sitemap component for Mambo and Joomla! could allow a remote attacker to include arbitrary files. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the sitemap.xml.php script using the 'mosConfig_absolute_path' parameter to specify a malicious file from a remote system, which could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system.
Upgrade to the latest version of Sitemap, available from the Mambo Web site. See References.
