Title:  QuiXplorer directory traversal
Affects:
        <= QuiXplorer 2.3
Effect: file disclosure, web server's user read access
Id: cbsa-0003
Release Date: 2004 08 14
Author: Cyrille Barthelemy <cb-publicbox () ifrance com>


-- 1. Introduction
------------------
From QuiXplorer documentation :

"QuiXplorer is a simple, but fully functional, file manager for websites.
QuiXplorer allows you to browse the files & directories on your webserver
(with PHP4). (without using an external FTP-client)"


-- 2. Problem
-------------
QuiXplorer does not apply filters on user inputs when a download is requested. The directory parameter is well filtered to check that it does not create a request that goes outside the authorized directories, but the item can contains parent directory
references.
As quixplorer does not make the request ing the web server features, any file on the
server can be obtained (according to jail or chroot).


-- 3. Solution
--------------
Apply the given attached patch against the QuiXplorer 2.3 sources or download the
latest version (2.3.1) from the web site.
