     Unauthenticated Arbitrary File Upload


HTMLarea is a product of dynarch.com and interactivetools.com .  It is 
available under a BSD type license and is widely used in Open Source web 

http://www.dynarch.com/projects/htmlarea/   is the product page, and should 
give more information. 
Various releases of CRE Loaded have used both HTMLArea 1.7 and 2.03.   HTMLArea 
is now nearing release 3.x. with 3.0 rc2 being available at the time of this 
writing.  I do not know if 3.x will address this issue.  Generally it appears 
that security is left to the integrator, and we apparently missed 4 files.
