Path Traversal Details:  
The following files and directories are vulnerable to Path Traversal  
Attack including any files or directories that the admin or super admin  
may create within these directories  
An example would be if the super admin created a directory within razor_temp_logs  
named sekrit which should not be accessible with a least privileged user, the  
least privileged user can change the path as shown below:  
Which also works on files within those directories which the user should not have  
access to which at this point gives the user access to view, edit, rename, move,  
copy and delete the file.  
Another vulnerability exist in this version of razorCMS, if a least privileged user creates  
a directory with their logged in credentials, and then deletes the directory, the user will  
then have access to the administrative directories and files.
