Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
Multiple directory traversal vulnerabilities in phpGroupWare 0.9.16.12, and possibly other versions before 0.9.16.014, allow remote attackers to (1) read arbitrary files via the csvfile parameter to addressbook/csv_import.php, or (2) include and execute arbitrary local files via the conv_type parameter in addressbook/inc/class.uiXport.inc.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.
