Disclosure Date


TYPO3 contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure. The issue is triggered when a remote attacker direclty requests the 'tslib/showpic.php' script, which will result in a failure to access certain include files. This will disclose the software's installation path in an error message, resulting in a loss of confidentiality. While such information is relatively low risk, it is often useful in carrying out additional, more focused attacks.
