Uploadify arbitrary file upload

  • Multiple vendor applications utilize Uploadify. Uploadify is a jQuery plugin that integrates a fully-customizable multiple file upload utility on your website. Uploadify contains functionality to handle file uploads. A remote attacker could use this functionality to upload malicous executable files on the system. To test file upload capabilities, Acunetix created a file named acunetix-uploadify-test.php in the server document root.
  • It is recommended to replace the Uploadify script with a script that is more secure.
