File: index.php
Affects: LS simple guestbook (v1)
Date: 15th April 2007

Issue Description:
==========================================================================LS simple guestbook fails to sanitize user input that it writes to the 
posts.txt file when the user leaves a message, this file is then included 
causing any php code within it to be run.
==========================================================================
Scope:
==========================================================================An attacker can inject arbitrary php code and potentially execute commands 
on the system.
==========================================================================
Recommendation:
==========================================================================Add the following line of code in index.php: 

$message = strip_tags($message);

just above: 

if ($message != "") {$file = fopen("$dataf","a");
==========================================================================

Example:

name = Test
message =
