Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
Absolute path traversal vulnerability in the HPInfoDLL.HPInfo.1 ActiveX control in HPInfoDLL.dll 1.0, as shipped with HP Info Center (hpinfocenter.exe) 184.108.40.206 in HP Quick Launch Button (QLBCTRL.exe, aka QLB) 6.3 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary programs via the first argument to the LaunchApp method. NOTE: only a user-assisted attack is possible on Windows Vista.
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.
