[-] Affected Versions:  
  
Version 4.1.7 and probably prior versions.  
  
  
[-] Vulnerability Description:  
  
The vulnerability exists because of the FileUploadsFilter::EXT_BLACKLIST constant, which is a regular  
expression for blacklisted files. Due to a lack of case-insensitive matching, the global upload filter  
could be bypassed by uploading a malicious file with capital letters within the extension. This can be  
exploited to upload and execute arbitrary PHP scripts if X2Engine is running on a case-insensitive  
filesystem or if the web server is configured to handle files’ extensions in a case-insensitive fashion.  
  
  
[-] Solution:  
  
Update to version 4.2 or later.
