Synopsis :

The remote host is running a service affected by a directory traversal
vulnerability.

Description :

The version of the 'Common.dll' library included with the ZENworks
Handheld Management install on the remote Windows host is affected by
a directory traversal vulnerability because it fails to sanitize user
input to the 'messageID' field in requests of directory traversal
sequences.

An unauthenticated, remote attacker with knowledge of the name / ID of
the server can exploit this vulnerability to create arbitrary files on
the remote host within the context of the ZENworks Handheld Management
Server process.
