IRCRASH has reported a vulnerability in Arab Portal, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.
Input passed via the "file" parameter in mod.php (when "mod" is set to "html" and "modfile" is set to "show") is not properly verified before being used to display files. This can be exploited to display arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal attacks.
Successful exploitation may require that the script runs on a Windows System.
This vulnerability is reported in version 2.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
