DESCRIPTION:
A security issue has been discovered in Mambo, which can be exploited
by malicious, local users to disclose certain sensitive information.

The security issue is caused due to the password for a SQL user being
stored in plain text in the world-readable file configuration.php
within the installation directory.

The security issue is confirmed in version 4.6.5. Other version may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Restrict access to the configuration.php file.
