TomatoCart 1.x versions are vulnerable to Unrestricted File Creation.
TomatoCart is an innovative Open Source shopping cart solution developed by Wuxi Elootec Technology Co., Ltd. It is forked from osCommerce 3 as a separate project and is released under the GNU General Public License V2. Equipped with the web2.0 Technology Ajax and Rich Internet applications (RIAs), TomatoCart Team is devoted to building a landmark eCommerce solution.
TomatoCart 1.x versions contain a flaw related to the /admin/json.php script's failure to properly restrict created files. This may allow an attacker to create arbitrary shell script to launch further attacks on the application server.
Tested on 1.1.8, 1.1.5
