DESCRIPTION: BeyazKurt has discovered a vulnerability in the Horoscope module for Xoops, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information or to compromise a vulnerable system.



Input passed to the "xoopsConfig[root_path]" parameter in footer.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 2.00. Other versions may also be affected.
