Description :

Secunia reports :

A vulnerability has been discovered in Pivot, which can be exploited
by malicious people to delete certain files.

Input passed to the 'refkey' parameter in
extensions/bbclone_tools/count.php is not properly sanitised before
being used to delete files. This can be exploited to delete files with
the permissions of the web server via directory traversal sequences
passed within the 'refkey' parameter.

NOTE: Users with the 'Advanced' user level are able to include and
execute uploaded PHP code via the 'pivot_path' parameter in
extensions/bbclone_tools/getkey.php when
extensions/bbclone_tools/hr_conf.php can be deleted.
