A new vulnerability labeled as CVE-2022-34662 has been identified in some versions of the Resource Center. This vulnerability exposes a potential path traversal issue when logged-in users attempt to add resources with a relation path. To fix this problem, it's recommended that users upgrade their Resource Center to version 3.. or higher immediately.
The path traversal issue can occur when a logged-in user adds a resource to the Resource Center using a relation path. This could lead to unauthorized access to sensitive files and directories, putting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the system at risk.
This vulnerability affects Resource Center versions lower than 3...
An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by providing a malicious relation path when adding a resource to the Resource Center. For example, they could use a path like the one shown below:
By providing a relation path like the one shown above, the attacker might be able to gain unauthorized access to sensitive files and directories. This can only be exploited by logged-in users.
The exploit details can be found in the original references: Original Reference 1 and Original Reference 2.
To mitigate this issue, it is recommended that users upgrade their Resource Center to version 3.. or higher. This upgraded version includes a patch to address the path traversal vulnerability. You can find the latest releases and update instructions on the official website: Resource Center Updates.
Users who cannot upgrade to the latest version should consider implementing access control measures to limit the possibility of exploitation. For example, they could restrict access to sensitive files and directories by using proper file permissions and authentication mechanisms.
The CVE-2022-34662 path traversal vulnerability underscores the importance of staying up-to-date with security patches and updates. By upgrading to the latest version of the Resource Center or implementing access control measures, users can mitigate the risk this vulnerability poses to their systems. Always remain vigilant and ensure that your software is regularly updated to protect against potential exploits.
