BP Group Documents Plugin for WordPress contains a flaw that allows traversing outside of a restricted path. The issue is due to the bp-group-documents-settings.php script not properly sanitizing user input, specifically path traversal style attacks (e.g. '../') supplied via the 'file' parameter. With a specially crafted request, an authenticated remote attacker can move arbitrary files to a readable location inside the uploads directory.
