know about :)

PHP remote file include vulnerability in Derek Ashauer ashNews 0.83
allows remote attackers to include and execute arbitrary remote files
via a URL in the pathtoashnews parameter to (1) ashnews.php and (2)

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: The vendor's forum post says 'There is a security
vulnerability in ashnews. ... On line 22 (or somewhere close to it)
... include($pathtoashnews."ashprojects/newsconfig.php"); ... Should
be ... include("ashprojects/newsconfig.php");.' The forum post is
written as a followup to related information on a
security-corporation.com web page (which seems to no longer exist).
