Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Post Revolution, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks, disclose sensitive information, and compromise a vulnerable system.
1) Input passed to the "dir" parameter in common.php and themes/default/preview_post_completo.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 of this vulnerability requires that "register_globals" is enabled.
