Description

The installation of phpMyFAQ on the remote host allows for bypassing authentication or escalating privileges via the 'admin/attachment.php' and 'admin/editor/plugins/ImageManager/images.php' scripts. By leveraging these issues, a remote attacker can upload files, possibly even containing arbitrary code, subject to the privileges of the web server user ID.

Note that successful exploitation of these issues requires PHP's 'register_globals' setting to be enabled.
