vulnerability in the PHP web application PhpGedView.

--
Detailed Information:
PhpGedView contains a flaw such that it may be possible for an attacker
to include code of their choosing by manipulating the PGV_BASE_DIRECTORY

It may be possible for an attacker to execute that code with the
privileges of the user running the webserver, usually root.

--

	PhpGedView 2.65.1 and earlier
--
Attack Scenarios:
An attacker can make a request to an affected script and define their
own path to the PGV_BASE_DIRECTORY variable.

--
Ease of Attack:
Simple. No exploit software required.

--
False Positives:
None known

--
False Negatives:
None known

--
Corrective Action:
Apply the appropriate vendor supplied patches

Upgrade to the latest non-affected version of the software
