Directory traversal vulnerability in the installer in PEAR 1.0 through
1.5.3 allows user-assisted remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary
files via a .. (dot dot) sequence in the (1) install-as attribute in
the file element in package.xml 1.0 or the (2) as attribute in the
install element in package.xml 2.0. NOTE: it could be argued that this
does not cross privilege boundaries in typical installations, since
the code being installed could perform the same actions.
