Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in Admin News Tools, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information or bypass certain security restrictions.
1) Input passed via the "fichier" parameter in system/download.php is not properly verified before being used to read files. This can be exploited to download arbitrary files from the local system via directory traversal attacks.
2) The application does not properly restrict access to script system/message.php, which can be exploited to post news messages by accessing the script directly.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2.5. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Use another product.
Provided and/or discovered by: Securitylab Security Research Team
