Vulnerability

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA39338

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/39338/

DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been discovered in the Picasa component for
Joomla!, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose
sensitive information.

Input passed to the "controller" parameter in index.php (if "option"
is set to "com_joomlapicasa2") is not properly verified before being
used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary
files from local resources via directory traversal attacks.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.0.5. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
