ht://dig is a web content search engine for Unix platforms. The software is set up to allow for file inclusion from configuration files. Any string surrounded by the opening singlw quote character ( ` ) is taken as a path to a file for inclusion, for example:
some_parameter:	`var/htdig/some_file`

htdig will also allow included files to be specified via form input. Therefore, any file can be specified for inclusion into a variable by any web user.

The URL:
http ://target/cgi-bin/htsearch?Exclude=%60/etc/passwd%60
will return a page with the contents of /etc/passwd in the 'exclude' field.
