Description

Newscoop contains a flaw that may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands or code. The issue is due to the /conf/liveuser_configuration.php script not properly sanitizing user input supplied to the 'GLOBALS[g_campsiteDir]' parameter before being used in the require_once() function. This may allow an attacker to include a file from a third-party remote host that contains commands or code that will be executed by the vulnerable script with the same privileges as the web server.
