A vulnerability was found in FlatPress (the affected version unknown). It has been classified as critical. This affects the function doItemActions of the file fp-plugins/mediamanager/panels/panel.mediamanager.file.php of the component File Delete Handler. The manipulation of the argument deletefile with an unknown input leads to a path traversal vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-22. The software uses external input to construct a pathname that is intended to identify a file or directory that is located underneath a restricted parent directory, but the software does not properly neutralize special elements within the pathname that can cause the pathname to resolve to a location that is outside of the restricted directory. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

The weakness was released 12/27/2022 as 179. The advisory is shared at github.com. This vulnerability is uniquely identified as CVE-2022-4748. Technical details are known, but no exploit is available. MITRE ATT&CK project uses the attack technique T1006 for this issue.
