viewpage.php is a part of PHPNuke.
The Script allows an attacker to view all files on the System.

Example:

http://server.com/viewpage.php?file=/etc/passwd
umm, what version of phpNuke is vulnerable to this? as far as I'm
aware, there has not been any viewpage.php since before 5.0...

I beleive this was reported then as well. reguardless, this is not true with 6.0
it's repeatable on PHP-Nuke 6.5.

I have the vanilla 6.5 and there is no viewpage.php file in the package that I can find. Are you sure that this isn't in an addon? Or possibly left over from a previous version that was never cleared out when phpnuke was updated?
