Score 7.5/10


Multiple directory traversal vulnerabilities in ZOHO ManageEngine OpManager 8 (build 88xx) through 11.4, IT360 10.3 and 10.4, and Social IT Plus 11.0 allow remote attackers or remote authenticated users to write and execute arbitrary files via a ..

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.
