A vulnerability has been reported in the Shoutbox Pro component for Joomla!, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.
Input passed via the "controller" parameter to index.php (when "option" is set to "com_shoutbox") is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal sequences and URL-encoded NULL bytes.
Solution: Reportedly fixed in version 1.2. Contact the vendor for further information.
