SQL-Ledger and LedgerSMB terminal file include
|sqlledger-ledgersmb-terminal-file-include (28885)||Medium Risk|
SQL-Ledger and LedgerSMB could allow a remote attacker to include arbitrary files. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the login.pl or admin.pl files using the terminal parameter to specify a malicious file from a remote or the local system, which could allow the attacker to obtain sensitive information or execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable Web server.
Note: In order to exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code using a local file, the attacker would first be required to upload a malicious file or inject arbitrary commands into an existing file.

Upgrade to the latest version of LedgerSMB, 1.0.0p1 or later, available from the SourceForge.net Web site. See References.
