Improper Control of Generation of Code ('Code Injection')
** DISPUTED ** Multiple PHP remote file inclusion vulnerabilities in FrontAccounting (FA) 1.12 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary PHP code via a URL in the path_to_root parameter to (1) access/logout.php or certain PHP scripts under (2) admin/, (3) dimensions/, (4) gl/, (5) inventory/, (6) manufacturing/, (7) purchasing/, (8) reporting/, (9) sales/, or (10) taxes/. NOTE: the config.php vector is already covered by CVE-2007-4279, and the login.php and language.php vectors are already covered by CVE-2007-5117. NOTE: this issue is disputed by CVE because path_to_root is defined before use in all of the other files reported in the original disclosure.
CWE-94 - Code Injection
Code injection is a type of vulnerability that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. This vulnerability fully compromises the machine and can cause a wide variety of security issues, such as unauthorized access to sensitive information, manipulation of data, denial of service attacks etc. Code injection is different from command injection in the fact that it is limited by the functionality of the injected language (e.g. PHP), as opposed to command injection, which leverages existing code to execute commands, usually within the context of a shell.
