DESCRIPTION:
John Leitch has discovered a vulnerability in the SEO Tools plugin
for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose
potentially sensitive information.

Input passed to the "file" parameter in
wp-content/plugins/seo-automatic-seo-tools/feedcommander/get_download.php
is not properly verified before being used to display files. This can
be exploited to disclose the contents of arbitrary files via
directory traversal attacks.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 3.0. Other versions may
also be affected.

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

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
John Leitch
