Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
Multiple directory traversal vulnerabilities in SiteX 0.7.4 Build 418 and earlier allow remote attackers to include and execute arbitrary local files via a .. (dot dot) in the THEME_FOLDER parameter to (1) Corporate/homepage.php, (2) Fusion/homepage.php, (3) Joombo/homepage.php, (4) Streamline/homepage.php, and (5) Structure/homepage.php in themes/.
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.
