SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
A vulnerability has been reported in the SimpleDownload component for

"option" is set to "com_simpledownload") 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.

also be affected.
