The Script allows an attacker to view all files on the System.


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?
