SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
A vulnerability has been discovered in the AlphaUserPoints component
for Joomla, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose
potentially sensitive information.
Input passed to the "view" parameter in index.php (when "option" is
set to "com_alphauserpoints") is not properly verified before being
used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary
files from local resources via directory traversal attacks and
URL-encoded NULL bytes.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.5.5. Other versions may
also be affected.
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
