* Safe file copying from tmp dir.
* Easy detecting mechanism of valid upload, missing upload or error.
* Gives extensive information about the uploaded file.
* Rename uploaded files in different ways: as it is, safe or unique
* Validate allowed file extensions

Vulnerability Type:
======================
Arbitrary File Upload
 
 
 
CVE Reference:
==============
N/A
 
 
 
Vulnerability Details:
=====================
 
The package comes with an "upload_example.php" file to test the package,
when uploading a "restricted" PHP file
user will get message like "Unauthorized file transmission".
 
Line: 488 of "Upload.php"
var $_extensionsCheck = array('php', 'phtm', 'phtml', 'php3', 'inc');
 
If user does not go thru the "Upload.php" code line by line. They will find
option to set case sensitive check.
e.g. Line: 503  "$_extensionsCaseSensitive"=true
 
Line: 874
 
* @param bool $case_sensitive whether extension check is case sensitive.
 
* When it is case insensitive, the extension
 
* is lowercased before compared to the array
 
* of valid extensions.
 
 
This setting looks to prevent mixed or uppercase extension on disallowed
PHP file type bypass before uploading.
 
However, some developers are unaware that "Apache" can process file with
extension like PHP.1, PHP.; etc.
if the last extension is not specified in the list of mime-types known to
the web server.
 
Therefore, attackers can easily bypass the security check by appending ".1"
to end of the file,
which can result in arbitrary command execution on the affected server.
 
e.g.
 
"ext_bypass.php.1" contents:
 
<?php
 
echo passthru('cat /etc/passwd');
 
?>
