Double Choco Latte (DCL) upload functions could be used to read files

dcl-file-upload (9742) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk


Double Choco Latte (DCL) fails to properly validate if the file, file_name, file_size, and file_type of an image file were set by an upload or by a POST command. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to read any file on the system that is readable by the Web server by tricking the Web server to process a local system file as if it were an uploaded file.
