A vulnerability has been reported in the Messaging component for Joomla, which can be exploited by malicious users to disclose sensitive information.
Input passed via the "controller" parameter in index.php (when "option" is set to "com_messaging" and "view" is set to "messages") is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal attacks.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.5.0. Other versions may also be affected.
