write permissions to execute arbitrary code by uploading a file with
an executable extension, then accessing it via a direct request to the
file in an unspecified directory, as exploited in the wild in July

Directory traversal vulnerability in the _do_attachment_move function
in the AttachFile action (action/ in MoinMoin 1.9.3

a .. (dot dot) in a file name.
