Description


Mark Stanislav has discovered a vulnerability in phpPaleo, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.

Input passed via the "lang" parameter and "phppaleo4_lang" cookie value to index.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 vulnerability is confirmed in version 4.8 b180. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to version 4.8 b180 which fixes the "lang" vector. Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.

Provided and/or discovered by:
Mark Stanislav.
