Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
Directory traversal vulnerability in the LaunchProcess function in the LaunchHelp.HelpLauncher.1 ActiveX control in LaunchHelp.dll in AdminStudio in Novell ZENworks Configuration Management (ZCM) 10.2, 10.3, and 11 SP1 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via a pathname in the first argument.
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.
