Description


A vulnerability has been reported in PTK, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an input validation error when handling file names within e.g. binary images. This can be exploited to manipulate parameters passed to the "get_file_type()" function in file_content.php, and inject and execute arbitrary commands with the privileges of the web server.

Successful exploitation requires that a user opens a malicious image and examines a file with a specially crafted file name.

The vulnerability is reported in version 1.0.


Solution:
Update to version 1.0.1
