Multiple directory traversal vulnerabilities in Magento Community Edition (CE) 126.96.36.199 and Enterprise Edition (EE) 188.8.131.52 allow remote authenticated users to include and execute certain PHP files via (1) .. (dot dot) sequences in the PATH_INFO to index.php or (2) vectors involving a block value in the ___directive parameter to the Cms_Wysiwyg controller in the Adminhtml module, related to the blockDirective function and the auto loading mechanism. NOTE: vector 2 might not cross privilege boundaries, since administrators might already have the privileges to execute code and upload files.

An attacker can leverage these issues to obtain sensitive information or execute malicious PHP code in the context of the webserver process, to compromise the application, access or modify data, or exploit latent vulnerabilities in the underlying database and to bypass the authentication mechanism and perform unauthorized actions.
