Description

PhpKobo Address Book contains a flaw that may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands or code. The issue is due to the 'staff/app/common.inc.php' script not properly sanitizing user input, specifically directory traversal style attacks (e.g., ../../) supplied to the 'LANG_CODE' parameter. This may allow an attacker to include a file from the targeted host that contains arbitrary commands or code that will be executed by the vulnerable script. Such attacks are limited due to the script only calling files already on the target host. In addition, this flaw can potentially be used to disclose the contents of any file on the system accessible by the web server.
