Dr Max Virus has reported some vulnerabilities in phpXMLDOM, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise vulnerable systems.
Input passed to the "path" parameter in include/dom.php, include/dtd.php and include/parser.php is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local or external resources.
Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled.
The vulnerabilities are reported in version 0.3. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
