Some vulnerabilities and two weaknesses have been discovered in phpMyWebmin, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose system information and compromise a vulnerable system.
1) Input passed to the "target" parameter in window.php and home.php isn't properly verified, before it is used in an "opendir()" call. This can be exploited to list files in arbitrary directories.
2) Input passed to the "target" and "action" parameters in window.php, and to the "target" parameter in change_preferences2.php, create_file.php, upload_local.php, and upload_multi.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.
The vulnerabilities and the weaknesses have been confirmed in version 1.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
Provided and/or discovered by: 1) Kernel-32
2) Kernel-32 and XORON.
