CVE-2023-37460 is a vulnerability affecting Plexis Archiver version 4.8.0 and earlier. This vulnerability allows an attacker to create arbitrary files and potentially execute remote code by exploiting the AbstractUnArchiver component when extracting an archive. By using a symbolic link with a non-existent target, the resolveFile() function returns the symlink's source instead of its target, bypassing file extraction verification checks. This vulnerability poses a high potential danger to organizations as it allows unauthorized file creation and potential remote code execution. To remediate this issue, organizations should update to version 4.8.0 or apply the provided patch.
