SECUNIA ADVISORY ID: SA16273

VERIFY ADVISORY: http://secunia.com/advisories/16273/

CRITICAL: Highly critical

IMPACT: System access

WHERE: >From remote

SOFTWARE: Simplicity oF Upload 1.x http://secunia.com/product/5454/

DESCRIPTION: rgod has reported a vulnerability in Simplicity oF Upload, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

Input passed to the "language" parameter in "download.php" isn't properly verified before it is used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from external and local resources by appending %00 to the end of the filename supplied to the "language" parameter.

Successful exploitation requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.

The vulnerability has been reported in version 1.3. Prior versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY: rgod
