Xerver < 4.20 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Xerver prior to 4.20. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists that is
triggered when a '.' is appended to the filename of a
script in a URL. A remote attacker can exploit this to
disclose the source code of the script. (CVE-2005-3293
/ OSVDB 20075)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists that is
triggered when a specially crafted HTTP request ending
with a null character (%00) at the end is sent. A remote
attacker can exploit this to disclose directly listings.
(CVE-2005-3293 / OSVDB 20076)

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exits due to an
unspecified flaw. A remote attacker can exploit this,
via a specially crafted URL containing a null character
(%00) followed by malicious code, to execute arbitrary
script code in a user's browser. (CVE-2005-4774)
