user.

For improper verification of input value of the parameter, the "doc"
parameter in "index.php" can be exploited to include arbitrary files of
external or local resources to execute arbitary commands.

index.php
- - ----
if (!$doc) {  (1) <-- check point
    $doc = './main.php';
}

// php ??? ??? ??? ? ??
$tmp = explode(".", $doc);
$extension = $tmp[count($tmp)-1];
if (!preg_match("/^(php[3]?|[p]?htm[l]?)$/i", $extension) || count($tmp)<=1)
{
    echo "php php3 htm html phtml ??? ??? ? ????.";
    exit;
}
......
ob_start();
include $doc; (2) <-- include point
