                                            `Hi ppl,  
  
_Manpage Lookup_ is a PHP class that helps you to build a "manpage"  
frontend in php. It is powered by Andy (http://php.amnuts.com).  
  
The script _class.manpagelookup.php_ was vulnerable to a directory  
transversal bug (because of leaks is input validation) that could lead  
to disclose any readable (by the httpd process id) files on the remote  
server.  
  
The problem was located in the function buildManPage(), the $cmd  
variable was not filtered enough and the path of any file to open could  
be given across the user input.  
  
Exploiting this issue was easy:   
http://www.foo.com/manpage/index.php?command=/etc/resolv.conf  
  
The vulnerability has now been fixed by Andy. All people who are running  
this script should upgrade asap (http://php.amnuts.com).  
  
Best regards,
