Input passed to the "home" parameter in ressourcen/dbopen.php is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local or external resources. Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled. The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.7.
