Default Insecure Configuration

Configuration settings for FCKeditor shipped with Geeklog are insecure by default. They allow attackers to view and upload files and folders under its predefined image upload directory. This is not FCKeditor's fault, the Geeklog developers enabled the insecure configuration. Abuse works whether the FCKeditor is enabled or disabled in the Geeklog configuration.
