- Description:
####################
Web Wiz Rich Text Editor (RTE) is a free WYSIWYG HTML Rich Text Editor  
that replaces standard textarea's with an advanced Word style HTMLarea.

####################
- Vulnerability:
####################
Input passed to the FolderName parameter in "RTE_file_browser.asp" is  
not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to  
list directories, list txt and list zip files through directory  
traversal attacks.
Also, "RTE_file_browser.asp" does not check user's session and an  
unauthenticated attacker can perform this attack.
Moreover, by using "RTE_popup_save_file.asp" attacker can make his/her  
HTML or HTM file on the server, so this can be used in XSS attacks or  
making fake pages.

-POC:
http://[WebWiz 
RTE]/RTE_file_browser.asp?look=save&sub=\.....\\\.....\\\.....\\\.....\\\.....\\\
http://[WebWiz RTE]/RTE_popup_save_file.asp 

####################
- Fast Solution :
####################
1- You can see below lines in "RTE_file_browser.asp"

=09'Stip path tampering for security reasons
=09strSubFolderName = Replace(strSubFolderName, "../", "", 1, -1, 1)
=09strSubFolderName = Replace(strSubFolderName, "..\", "", 1, -1, 1)
=09strSubFolderName = Replace(strSubFolderName, "./", "", 1, -1, 1)
=09strSubFolderName = Replace(strSubFolderName, ".\", "", 1, -1, 1)

Only add this to them:
=09strSubFolderName = Replace(strSubFolderName, "/", "\", 1, -1, 1)
=09strSubFolderName = Replace(strSubFolderName, "\\", "\", 1, -1, 1)
=09strSubFolderName = Replace(strSubFolderName, "..", "", 1, -1, 1)
2- Rename "RTE_popup_save_file.asp" till main solution by vendor
