Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in Simple PHP News, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
Input passed to the "title", "date", and "post" parameters in post.php is not properly sanitised before being written to the "news.txt" file. This can be exploited to inject and execute arbitrary PHP code.
These vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.0 final. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
Provided and/or discovered by: Osirys and an anonymous person.
