Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in both File Lite and File Pro, two file management applications created by Perception Systems for iOS, currently available on Apple’s App Store.

Researchers at Vulnerability Laboratory found the bugs on the latest builds of File Lite and File Pro – released on May 17 and May 14 respectively.

Both apps afford attackers the ability to upload files to another user’s account without their permission,  while two others allow code injection in the user’s browser while they view a file listing, according to AOL’s Apple blog TUAW, which wrote about the issues today.

Both of the vulnerabilities rely on the user browsing files on the device via its WiFi setting, so anyone who uses the apps may want avoid doing that until the company issues another fix.

Email requests for comment sent to Perception Systems were not immediately returned on Monday, yet the version update history for the applications in question are patched every several months.
