Dj7xpl has discovered a vulnerability in Maran PHP Forum, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
Input passed to the "name" parameter in forum_write.php is not properly sanitised before it is written to the filename from the "page" parameter plus an additional ".txt" string. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary PHP code by including PHP code in "name" and NULL bytes in "page".
Successful exploitation requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
Provided and/or discovered by: Dj7xpl
