Description

The version of the Kietu web statistics application hosted on the remote web server fails to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'url_hit' parameter of the 'index.php' script before using it to include PHP code. Regardless of PHP's 'register_globals' setting, an unauthenticated attacker can exploit this issue to view arbitrary files or possibly to execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.
