Sun Kodak Color Management System contains a flaw that allows a remote attacker to traverse outside of a restricted path. The issue is due to the KCS_OPEN_PROFILE not properly sanitizing user input, specifically directory traversal style attacks (e.g., ../../) supplied via the KCMS profile. This directory traversal attack would allow the attacker to access arbitrary files.
