PHPPGAdmin Include File Arbitrary Command Execution Vulnerability

phpPgAdmin is a freely available, open source software package developed and maintained by the phpPgAdmin Development Team. phpPgAdmin is designed as a user friendly, graphical frontend to PostgreSQL database administration.

A problem with the software package could allow arbitrary file inclusion. Due to the insufficient validation of input by the sql.php script, it is possible to supply an include file to the sql.php script, which will result in the code in the include file being executed. A remote user with knowledge of files on the local host, or the ability to upload an include file, may specify the file to be included in execution, which could result in code supplied include file being executed.

Therefore, it is possible for a remote user to supply an include file to the sql.php script, and execute arbitrary code.
