[原文]PhpMyFaq 1.5.1 stores data files under the web document root with insufficient access control and predictable filenames, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via a direct request to the data/tracking[DATE] file.
phpMyFAQ contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure. The issue is triggered when a remote attacker directly requests a log file from the /data/ directory occurs, which will disclose user information and other log entries resulting in a loss of confidentiality. This attack requires the attacker to supply a file name based on the date.
Upgrade to version 1.5.2 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
