A vulnerability has been discovered in iFileExplorer Free, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information.

Input passed to the WIFI file transfer functionality of the application via an URL is not properly sanitised before being used to access files. This can be exploited to access files outside of the application root and e.g. download an iPhone address book via directory traversal attacks.

Note: The file transfer functionality is only accessible through WLAN.

The vulnerability is reported in version 2.7 and confirmed in version 2.8. Other versions may also be affected.
