Vulnerability title: Arbitrary File Upload in Symmetricom s350i
|Reported by:||Mike Emery|
It was discovered that the web application allows users to upload files of any type at the following URL:
Note: There was no authentication on this page.
An attacker could exploit this functionality to upload server scripts which, when requested by a browser, would execute code on the server.
The ability to upload arbitrary files could result in highly damaging content such as malware, indecent images, viruses and/or pirated software being uploaded and stored, and later downloaded. The storage of such material could quite possibly have serious legal implications for the hosting organisation.
Exploit code is not required
