Additional Information

The Import/Export function in the Portal Site Manager, part of the Jetspeed Administrative Portlets, is vulnerable to a path traversal via specially crafted file names in ZIP archives. Any user with permission to upload files via this function can upload a file with a name like "../../../../tmp/foo" to write a file named "foo" in the /tmp directory.
