The CVE-2012-1226 vulnerability is a serious security flaw found in Dolibarr CMS version 3.2.0 Alpha. The vulnerability allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files and possibly execute arbitrary code through directory traversal attacks.

An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by inserting ".." (dot dot) into the file path, allowing them to access files outside of the intended directory.
When exploited, the vulnerability can lead to the exposure of sensitive data, including user credentials, intellectual property, and financial information.
