Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-08-21 14:50:17 UTC
A directory traversal and information disclosure (local file inclusion) flaws were found in the cssgen contrib module (application to generate custom CSS files) of GeSHi, a generic syntax highlighter, performed sanitization of 'geshi-path' and 'geshi-lang-path' HTTP GET / POST variables. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL that, when visited could lead to local file system traversal or, potentially, ability to read content of any local file, accessible with the privileges of the user running the webserver.
