Description

Directory traversal vulnerability in the eXtplorer module (com_extplorer) 2.0.0 RC2 and earlier in Joomla! allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files via a .. (dot dot) in the dir parameter in a show_error action.

Category: Path Manipulation

CWE-22 (Path Traversal)
The software uses external input to construct a pathname that is intended to identify a file or directory that is located underneath a restricted parent directory, but the software does not properly neutralize special elements within the pathname that can cause the pathname to resolve to a location that is outside of the restricted directory.
