Phpkobo Address Book Script LANG_CODE file include

addressbook-langcode-file-include (56910) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

Phpkobo Address Book Script could allow a remote attacker to include arbitrary files. If magic_quotes_gpc is disabled, a remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the common.inc.php script using the LANG_CODE 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.
