Vulnerability CVE-2007-0205


Published: 2007-01-11   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
Directory traversal vulnerability in admin/skins.php for @lex Guestbook 4.0.2 and earlier allows remote attackers to create files in arbitrary directories via ".." sequences in the (1) aj_skin and (2) skin_edit parameters. NOTE: this can be leveraged for file inclusion by creating a skin file in the lang directory, then referencing that file via the lang parameter to index.php, which passes a sanity check in livre_include.php.
