OMICARD EDM, a popular file management tool, has a high severity vulnerability that allows unauthorized file uploads.

The issue arises because OMICARD EDM’s file uploading feature does not properly restrict the types of files that can be uploaded. This means that an attacker can upload an executable file, like a .exe or .bat, and have it run on the server without authentication.

By uploading a malicious file, an attacker could then execute arbitrary code or commands on the system. They could install malware, view and steal sensitive data, or even completely disrupt services.

The CVSS score for this vulnerability is 9.8 out of 10, meaning it is very easy to exploit and can have severe impacts. Any OMICARD EDM instance exposed online is at high risk.

If you use OMICARD EDM, you should contact their support team immediately to see if you are affected and get details on patching or mitigation steps. In the meantime, consider removing file upload features if possible or carefully validate all uploaded file types. Also check your permissions and make sure only authorized users can upload files.

Stay vigilant about software updates. Promptly applying patches is one of the best ways to avoid falling victim to vulnerabilities like this one. Regularly reviewing privileges and access controls can also help limit the damage of any exploits.
