SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
A vulnerability has been discovered in the Abbreviations Manager
component for Joomla, which can be exploited by malicious people to
disclose potentially sensitive information.
Input passed to the "controller" parameter in index.php (if "option"
is set to "com_abbrev") is not properly verified before being used to
include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from
local resources via directory traversal attacks.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.1. Other versions may
also be affected.
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
