Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
Unrestricted file upload vulnerability in the "My productions" component for main/auth/profile.php (aka the "My profile" page) in Dokeos 1.8.4 allows remote authenticated users to upload and execute arbitrary PHP files via a filename with a double extension, which can then be accessed through a URI under main/upload/users/.
CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls
CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
