Affecting: phpvidz 0.9.5 Vulnerability: Administrative Password Disclosure Vendor's Homepage: http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpvidz/ Date: May 15th 2010 Researcher: Michael Brooks

phpvidz does not use a SQL database. Instead it uses a system of flat files to maintain application state. The administrative password is stored within the following file and is included during runtime. Because this file has a .inc extension it is viewable by the attacker.

To exploit this issue visit this url: http://localhost/phpvidz_0.9.5/includes/init.inc By default the password is the following constant: define ('ADMINPASSWORD' , '0000' ); This password can be used to login here (A username is not required): http://localhost/phpvidz_0.9.5/admin.php
