Red Hat CloudForms contains a flaw that allows an attacker to traverse outside of a restricted path. The issue is due to agent/linuxpkgs not properly sanitizing user input, specifically directory traversal style attacks (e.g. ../../) supplied via the 'filename' parameter. This directory traversal attack would allow a remote attacker to create arbitrary files.
