Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-11 (Kronolith: Local file inclusion)

Kronolith contains a mistake in lib/FBView.php where a raw, unfiltered     string is used instead of a sanitized string to view local files.

Impact :

An authenticated attacker could craft an HTTP GET request that uses     directory traversal techniques to execute any file on the web server as     PHP code, which could allow information disclosure or arbitrary code     execution with the rights of the user running the PHP application     (usually the webserver user).

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
