Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
BaserCMS is an open source content management system with a focus on Japanese language support. In versions prior to 4.5.4 users with upload privilege may upload crafted zip files capable of path traversal on the host operating system. This is a vulnerability that needs to be addressed when the management system is used by an unspecified number of users. If you are eligible, please update to the new version as soon as possible.
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.
