Title: PNphpBB2 'printview.php' Local File Include Vulnerability

Severity: HIGH

Description:

PNphpBB2 module is a PHPBB forum for the PostNuke content manager.

The application is prone to a local file-include vulnerability because it fails to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied input to the 'phpEx' parameter of the 'printview.php' script. Exploiting this issue may allow an unauthorized user to view files and execute local scripts.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary local scripts and retrieve potentially sensitive information.

This issue affects PNphpBB2 1.2i and prior versions.

Affected Products:

  • PNphpBB PNphpBB2 1.2.0 i
