there is a code injection vulnerability in NewsPortal that could give everyone the ability to execute php code on the webserver where newsportal is installed.
This bug should only occur if "register_globals=on" is set in the php.ini.
To remove the problem:
- install the recent version: http://florian-amrhein.de/nw/newsportal/download/newsportal-0.37.tar.gz (it also removes some minor bugs, and a cross site scripting security hole)
- or delete extras/extras/poll/poll.php
