Vulnerability Details:
High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in VtigerCRM, which can be exploited to perform local file inclusion attacks.

1) Input passed via the "file" GET parameter to index.php is not properly verified before being used to include files.
This can be exploited to include previously uploaded files via directory traversal sequences and URL-encoded NULL bytes.
