Some security issues have been reported in TorrentTrader, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges.
The security issues are caused due to insecure default file permissions being set for the disclaimer.txt, sponsors.txt, and banners.txt files by the installation script. These can be exploited to execute arbitrary PHP code with the privileges of the webserver.
The security issues are reported in versions 1.07 and prior. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: The vendor recommends to remove the world writable permissions from the affected files.
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported by the vendor.
