DESCRIPTION: Janek Vind has discovered a vulnerability in the Dance Music module for PHP-Nuke, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.

Input passed to the "ACCEPT_FILE[1]" parameter through modules.php in the PHP-Nuke installation to index.php in the module (when "page" is set to "1") is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources. The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.0. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
