Eugene Minaev has discovered a vulnerability in Loudblog, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
Input passed to the "template" parameter in loudblog/inc/parse_old.php is not properly verified before being used to execute PHP code. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary PHP code via a specially crafted "template" parameter.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code, but requires that "register_globals" is enabled.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 0.8.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
