What does the BNVL label mean?
BitNinja Server Security’s BNVL identifiers are intended for use to identify publicly known information security vulnerabilities in publicly released software packages. This project was designed to collect and analyze attack information from the BitNinja network after cluster analysis by the AI-powered Attack Vector Miner. More than 100 vulnerability types have been discovered with this project so far, so we decided to publish this platform to help to keep Linux server owners up-to-date.

CVE ID: Na
Local File Inclusion (also known as LFI) is the process of including files, that are already locally present on the server, through the exploiting of vulnerable inclusion procedures implemented in the application. This vulnerability occurs, for example, when a page receives, as input, the path to the file that has to be included and this input is not properly sanitized, allowing directory traversal characters (such as dot-dot-slash) to be injected. Although most examples point to vulnerable PHP scripts, we should keep in mind that it is also common in other technologies such as JSP, ASP and others.
