Some vulnerabilities have been reported in VS-News-System, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
Input passed to the "newsordner" parameter in show_news_inc.php and tpl/header.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 1.2.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
