A vulnerability has been discovered in the AutartiTarot component for Joomla, which can be exploited by malicious users to disclose potentially sensitive information.
Input passed to the "controller" parameter in administrator/index.php (when "option" is set to "com_autartitarot") is not properly sanitised before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal attacks and URL-encoded NULL bytes.
Successful exploitation requires "Public Back-end" group credentials.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.0.3. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
