Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')


Severity High
Score 10/10


Directory traversal vulnerability in index.php in Neutrino Atomic Edition 0.8.4 allows remote attackers to read and modify files, as demonstrated by manipulating data/sess.php in (1) usb and (2) del_pag actions. NOTE: this can be leveraged for code execution by performing an upload that bypasses the intended access restrictions that were implemented in sess.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.
