DESCRIPTION: Mustafa Can Bjorn has reported a vulnerability in the Blend Portal System module for phpBB, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

Input passed to the "phpbb_root_path" parameter in blend_data/blend_common.php isn't properly verified, before it is used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from external and local resources.

Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled.

The vulnerability has been reported in version 1.2.0. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION: Apply code changes as instructed by the vendor. http://phpbb-tweaks.com/topics.html-p-17623#17623
