Xaraya module Parameter Directory Traversal Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for module parameter directory traversal vulnerability in Xaraya

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
directory traversal flaw.

The version of Xaraya installed on the remote host does not sanitize
input to the 'module' parameter of the 'index.php' script before using
it to write to files on the affected host. Using a specially-crafted
request, an unauthenticated attacker can create directories and
possibly overwrite arbitrary files on the affected host subject to the
permissions of the web server user id.
