JomSocial 1.8.8 Shell Upload Vulnerability. Webapps exploit for php platform

                                            There is a file upload vulnerability in version 1.8.8 and earlier of 
JomSocial, the popular community extension for Joomla!.

Successful exploitation of this exploit requires the site to be 
configured to allow users to upload video files directly, which is 
disabled by default. If this feature is enabled, any file uploaded via 
the "add video" upload form will end up in 
http://[victim]/images/originalvideos/[your account's user id]/[unique 
file name]. This folder is not protected with an index, so if indexes 
are allowed retrieving the shell's filename is trivial.

Listed on the JomSocial Changelog as "BUG: 4495"
