Auction Weaver Form Field Arbitrary File/Directory Deletion
Remote / Network Access
Loss of Confidentiality,
Loss of Integrity,
Loss of Availability
Auction Weaver contains a flaw that allows a remote attacker to delete arbitrary files and directories. The issue is due to a lack of sanity checking on form field content. By using a directory traversal style attack (../../) an attacker can delete arbitrary directories and all files in them.
Upgrade to version 1.05 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
