vulnerability.

Revision 1.0
Date Published: 2005-01-20 (KST)
Last Update: 2005-01-20 (KST)

Summary
========
JSBoard is one of widely used web BBS applications in Korea. Because of an
input validation flaw, a malicious attacker can read arbitrary files.

Vulnerability Class
===================
Implementation Error: Input validation flaw

Impact
======
Medium : arbitrary file disclosure

Affected Products
================
JSBoard 2.0.9 and prior.

Vendor Status: FIXED
====================
2004-12-31 Vulnerability found.
2004-12-31 JSBoard developer notified.
2005-01-02 Developer confirmed.
2005-01-02 Update version released.
2005-01-20 Official release.

Details
=======
PHP has a feature discarding the input values containing null characters
when magic_quotes_gpc = off. Because JSBoard session.php doesn't sanitize
$table variable, a malicious attacker can read arbitrary files.

- ---
include_once "include/print.php";
parse_query_str();
$opt = $table ? "&table=$table" : "";
$opts = $table ? "?table=$table" : "";
...snip...

Proof of Concept
