PHPizabi could allow a remote attacker with administrative access to the application to include arbitrary files. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the index.php script using the id parameter to specify a malicious file from 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, the attacker would first be required to upload a malicious file or inject arbitrary commands into an existing file.
