CRITICAL:

http://secunia.com/product/5558/

DESCRIPTION:
Kacper has discovered a vulnerability in miniBB, which can be
exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

Input passed to the "pathToFiles" parameter in bb_func_txt.php is not
properly verified before being used to include files. This can be
exploited to include arbitrary files from local or external
resources.

Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.0.2. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified or
disable "register_globals".
