Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in Strawberry, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information and compromise a vulnerable system.
1) Input passed to the "text" parameter in plugins/wacko/highlight/html.php is not properly sanitised before being used in a "preg_replace()" call with the "e" modifier. This can be exploited to inject and execute arbitrary PHP code.
2) Input passed to the "file" parameter in plugins/ddb/foot.php is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal attacks and URL-encoded NULL-bytes.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.
The vulnerabilities is confirmed in version 1.1.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised and verified.
