Charles Nelwan has discovered a vulnerability in the a6MamboCredits component for Mambo, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
Input passed to the "mosConfig_absolute_path" parameter in administrator/components/com_a6mambocredits/admin.a6mambocredits.php isn't properly verified, before it is used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from external and local resources.
Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled.
The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 2.0.0 and has also been reported in version 1.0.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
