4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered two vulnerabilities in Achievo, which 
can be exploited by malicious users to disclose sensitive information.

1) Input passed via the "node" parameter to include.php (when "file" 
is set to "atk/popups/help.inc") is not properly verified in 
atk/popups/help.inc before being used to include files. This can be 
exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources via 
directory traversal sequences and URL-encoded NULL bytes.

2) Input passed via e.g. the "plotter" parameter to graph.php is not 
properly verified in the "atkuse()" function in atk/atktools.inc 
before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include 
arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal 
sequences and URL-encoded NULL bytes.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities requires that 
"magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.
