CVE-2018-12054 Scanner Detail

The Schools Alert Management Script is a PHP-based software used to manage alerts and communications within educational institutions. The software provides a centralized platform for schools to create, customize and send alerts to parents, guardians and students. It can be used for a variety of purposes, such as emergency notifications, event reminders, exam schedules and school closures.

CVE-2018-12054 is a security vulnerability detected in the software that allows arbitrary file reads. The vulnerability is caused by a flaw in the img.php file, which allows the f parameter to be exploited for absolute path traversal. This means that an attacker can access any file on the web server that the PHP process has access to, including sensitive files that contain confidential information.

If this vulnerability is exploited, it can lead to severe consequences, such as theft of sensitive data like student records, financial information, and intellectual property. An attacker can also use this vulnerability to execute malicious code on the server, gain administrative privileges, and control the entire system to their advantage. The result could be a complete compromise of the school's digital assets.
