Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
Multiple absolute path traversal vulnerabilities in Pegasus Imaging ImagXpress 8.0 allow remote attackers to (1) delete arbitrary files via the CacheFile attribute in the ThumbnailXpres.1 ActiveX control (PegasusImaging.ActiveX.ThumnailXpress1.dll) or (2) overwrite arbitrary files via the CompactFile function in the ImagXpress.8 ActiveX control (PegasusImaging.ActiveX.ImagXpress8.dll).
CWE-22 - Path Traversal
Path traversal (or directory traversal), is a vulnerability that allows malicious users to traverse the server's root directory, gaining access to arbitrary files and folders such as application code & data, back-end credentials, and sensitive operating system files. In the worst-case scenario, an attacker could potentially execute arbitrary files on the server, resulting in a denial of service attack. Such an exploit may severely impact the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of an application.
