** DISPUTED ** Directory traversal vulnerability in payments/ideal_process.php in the iDEAL transaction handler in ViArt Shopping Cart allows remote attackers to have an unknown impact via directory traversal sequences in the filename parameter to the createCertFingerprint function. NOTE: this issue is disputed by CVE because PHP encounters a fatal function-call error on a direct request for payments/ideal_process.php.

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.
