- Vulnerability:
####################

+--> Local File Inclusion

Because of the vulnerability in "admin/index.php", When  
"register_globals" is disabled (Default PHP Configuration) It is  
possible for remote attackers to
include arbitrary files from local resources before performing authentication.

Code Snippet:
/lists/admin.php #line:10-18

if (!ini_get("register_globals") || ini_get("register_globals") == "off") {
   # fix register globals, for now, should be phased out gradually
   # sure, this gets around the entire reason that  
regLANGUAGE_SWITCHister globals
   # should be off, but going through three years of code takes a long time....

   foreach ($_REQUEST as $key => $val) {
     $$key = $val;
   }
}

/lists/admin.php #line:41-56

if (isset($_SERVER["ConfigFile"]) && is_file($_SERVER["ConfigFile"])) {
   print ''."\n";
   include $_SERVER["ConfigFile"];
} elseif (isset($cline["c"]) && is_file($cline["c"])) {
   print ''."\n";
   include $cline["c"];
} elseif (isset($_ENV["CONFIG"]) && is_file($_ENV["CONFIG"])) {
#  print ''."\n";
   include $_ENV["CONFIG"];
} elseif (is_file("../config/config.php")) {
   print ''."\n";
   include "../config/config.php";
} else {
   print "Error, cannot find config file\n";
   exit;
}
