Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
Directory traversal vulnerability in GlobalSCAPE CuteFTP Home 8.2.0 Build 02.26.2008.4 and CuteFTP Pro 8.2.0 Build 04.01.2008.1 allows remote FTP servers to create or overwrite arbitrary files via ..\ (dot dot backslash) sequences in responses to LIST commands, a related issue to CVE-2002-1345. NOTE: this can be leveraged for code execution by writing to a Startup folder.
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.
