--
Summary:
This event is generated when an attempt is made to exploit a known
vulnerability in the PHP web application DCP-Portal.

--
Impact:
Execution of arbitrary code on the affected system

--
Detailed Information:
DCP-Portal contains a flaw such that it may be possible for an attacker
to include code of their choosing by manipulating the variable root when 
making a GET or POST  request  to a vulnerable system.

It may be possible for an attacker to execute that code with the
privileges of the user running the webserver, usually root by supplying
their code in a file included from an external source by modifying the
variable "root" in the editor.php script.

--
Affected Systems:
	DCP-Portal 5.0.1

--
Attack Scenarios:
An attacker can make a request to an affected script and define their
own path for the root 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
