LifeType < 1.1.6 rss.php profile Parameter Traversal Arbitrary File Access

Low Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3916


The remote host may allow remote disclosure of confidential files.


The remote host is running LifeType, an open-source blogging platform. The version of LifeType installed on the remote fails to sanitize input to the 'profile' parameter of the 'rss.php' script of directory traversal sequences. An unauthenticated remote attacker can leverage this flaw to read files on the affected host and disclose sensitive information, such as configuration parameters used by the application.


Upgrade to version 1.1.6, 1.2-beta2 or higher.
