The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


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.


Update the affected package.
