Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
A vulnerability has been identified in SiNVR/SiVMS Video Server (All versions < V5.0.0). The two FTP services (default ports 21/tcp and 5411/tcp) of the SiVMS/SiNVR Video Server contain a path traversal vulnerability that could allow an authenticated remote attacker to access and download arbitrary files from the server, if the FTP services are enabled.
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.
