A weakness has been reported in the AtomiconGallery component for Joomla!, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to manipulate certain data and potentially gain escalated privileges.
The weakness is caused due to the component setting insecure permissions (777) for the "images/atomicongallery" folder and its subfolders. This can be exploited to e.g. modify, create, or delete files contained in the folders.
The weakness is reported in version 1.0.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 1.0.3.
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported by the Joomla! VEL team.
