Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
ImpressCMS before 1.4.2, before v2.0.0-alpha.11 allows unauthenticated remote code execution via ...../// directory traversal in origName or imageName, leading to unsafe interaction with the CKEditor processImage.php script. The payload may be placed in PHP_SESSION_UPLOAD_PROGRESS when the PHP installation supports upload_progress.
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.
