The iNetLanka Contact Us Draw Root Map component for Joomla! is designed to provide website administrators with an easy way to create and display a visual representation of the website's directory structure. It is typically used on Joomla! websites that have a large number of pages or complex directory structures. The component's functionality allows users to draw and display the website's directory structure as a tree or graph, which can help improve site navigation and information architecture.

One of the vulnerabilities detected in this product is CVE-2010-1723. This vulnerability is a directory traversal vulnerability that allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files on the server. The vulnerability is caused by the component's failure to properly validate user input when processing requests for files and directories. An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by injecting a ".." sequence into the controller parameter to reach files that are not intended to be accessible to them.

When this vulnerability is exploited, it can lead to serious consequences for website owners and their users. An attacker can use the vulnerability to gain sensitive information, such as user passwords or data stored in configuration files. They could also upload malicious scripts and execute commands remotely, effectively compromising the entire website. This could lead to loss of data, financial damage, and reputational harm.
