Life Educacional comprises a set of online computer tools capable of bringing agility and control in all activities of a teaching institution,
whether public or private, or basic, basic, secondary or higher education.

Vulnerability Disclosure:
==========================
2017-09-12: Public Disclosure

Affected Product(s):
=====================
LIFE SISTEMAS CMS

Exploitation Technique:
========================
Remote

Severity Level:
================
High

Technical Details & Description:
=================================
A Directory Traversal vulnerability has been discovered in the LIFE CMS web-application.
The vulnerability is located in the 'arquivo' parameter of the`baixar.php` action GET method request.

Request Method(s):

[+] GET

Vulnerable Function(s):

[+] baixar.php

Vulnerable Parameter(s):

[+] arquivo

Proof of Concept (PoC):
========================
A path traversal attack (also known as directory traversal) aims to access files and directories that are stored outside the web root folder.
By manipulating variables that reference files with adot-dot-slash (../)a sequences and its variations or by using absolute file paths,
it may be possible to access arbitrary files and directories stored on file system including application source code or configuration and critical system files.
It should be noted that access to files is limited by system operational access control. [OWASP]

Solution
=========
There are several measures that enterprises can take to prevent directory traversal attacks and vulnerabilities.
For starters, programmers should be trained to validate user input from browsers.
Input validation ensures that attackers cannot use commands that leave the root directory or violate other access privileges.
Beyond this, filters can be used to block certain user input.
Enterprises typically employ filters to block URLs containing commands and escape codes that are commonly used by attackers.
Additionally, web server software (and any software that is used) should be kept up-to-date with current patches.
Regularly patching software is a critical practice for reducing security risk, as software patches typically contain security fixes. [Veracode]
