Re: Shoutpro 1.0 Version - Remote File Include Vulnerability

There might be a terminology problem here.

I don't see how this can be used to execute code. Yes, the file()
call could be used to access a file that the attacker can control, but
the only use of the $ips array is in checking for banned addresses.
The use of file() is not the same as include() or require().

So - attackers could use this to bypass a ban against their IP address
because they can control the ban file, but that's not the same as
