Vulnerability CVE-2017-15276


Published: 2017-10-13

Description:
OpenText Documentum Content Server (formerly EMC Documentum Content Server) through 7.3 contains the following design gap, which allows an authenticated user to gain superuser privileges: Content Server allows uploading content using batches (TAR archives). When unpacking TAR archives, Content Server fails to verify the contents of an archive, which causes a path traversal vulnerability via symlinks. Because some files on the Content Server filesystem are security-sensitive, this leads to privilege escalation.

Type:

CWE-22

(Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal'))
