Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
Adobe RoboHelp Server version 2019.0.9 (and earlier) is affected by a Path Traversal vulnerability when parsing a crafted HTTP POST request. An authenticated attacker could leverage this vulnerability to achieve arbitrary code execution in the context of the current user. Exploitation of this issue does not require user interaction.
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.
