Vendor has provided ACK and fix for CVE-2006-1503.
The front page of the VWar web site (http://www.vwar.de/) says:
ATTENTION: MAJOR SECURITY UPDATE
This vulnerability has been reported on securityfocus.com. We
recommend to replace the file functions_install.php as soon as
fixed: XSS bug in functions_install.php which could allow malicious
users to include a (remote) file and eg. execute php commands on the
server hosting vwar
Obviously, the developer is referring to file inclusion and not "XSS"
Also, for those who care, the following PhpNuke Clan web announcement
shows that it uses VWar as a module:
"PHPNUKE-CLAN.COM Release the new version of PNC! The version 2.1.0
With VWAR & Server Viewer installed on it! The installation are
simplified, more block for VWAR and JAG Online for the User Info
This could be relevant for this Bugtraq post:
BUGTRAQ:20060401 PHPNuke-Clan 3.0.1 Remote File Inclusion Exploit
since the demonstration URL here shows the VWar relationship:
HOWEVER: since the include file and parameter name are different than
original reported vectors for VWar, this could be a separate issue.
PHPNuke Clan requires registration to download, and so does vWar, so I
didn't investigate any further.
