Summary

Meilad File upload script (up.php) mod for phpBB 2.0.x does not properly limit the types of files that can be uploaded, which allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary commands by uploading PHP files, then directly requesting them from the uploads directory.

descriptionThe installed version of phpBB on the remote host includes a file upload script intended as a way for users to upload files that they can then link to in their posts. The script, however, does not require authentication, makes only a limited check of upload file types, and stores uploads in a known location. As a result, an attacker can upload arbitrary scripts to the remote host and execute them with the permissions of the web server user.
