ThE g0bL!N has reported a vulnerability in PHP Site Lock, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application allowing access to the administrative interface by checking if certain cookies exist. This can be exploited to gain administrative access to the application by creating the cookies "login_id", "group_id", "login_name", "user_id", "user_type" and assigning them valid, guessable values.
The vulnerability is reported in version 2.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Restrict network access to the administrative interface.
