Actionpoll Remote Arbitrary Code Execution Vulnerability

Actionpoll is a freely available, open-source PHP voting script. It allows surveys to be stored in a MySQL database or in textfiles.

A problem exists in Actionpoll that will allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a host running the software(with the privileges of the webserver process). It is possible to supply arbitrary data to the $include variable. This variable is used to specify a file containing PHP code that is to be executed. As a result, the affected script may be redirected to execute arbitrary code located on an external host, as specified by the attacker.

This issue can be exploited if the remote attacker submits a maliciously crafted URL.
