Vendor: VistaBB (http://www.vistabb.net)  
Version: 2.033 and prior versions must be affected.  
About: Via this methods remote attacker can include arbitrary files to   
VistaBB.Variable phpbb_root_path did not sanitized properly before using it   
on includes/functions_mod_user.php and includes/functions_portal.php so   
remote attacker can include internal and external files to VistaBB  
For including internal files magic_quotes_gpc must be off on server settings   
because remote attacker needs to use null char at the end of filename.  
Eg: /etc/passwd%00  
Level: Highly Critical
