QuickShare File Server 1.2.1 Directory Traversal Vulnerability

This module exploits a vulnerability found in QuickShare File Server's FTP service. By supplying "../" in the file path, it is possible to trigger a directory traversal flaw, allowing the attacker to read a file outside the virtual directory. By default, the "Writable" option is enabled during account creation, therefore this makes it possible to create a file at an arbitrary location, which leads to remote code execution.
