Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
Multiple vulnerabilities in Cisco TelePresence Collaboration Endpoint (CE) Software and Cisco RoomOS Software could allow an attacker to conduct path traversal attacks, view sensitive data, or write arbitrary files on an affected device. For more information about these vulnerabilities, see the Details section of this advisory.
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.
