webEdition CMS index.php file include
|webedition-index-file-include (49530)||Medium Risk|
webEdition CMS could allow a remote attacker to include arbitrary files. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the index.php script using the WE_LANGUAGE 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.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
