MS11-066: Vulnerability in Microsoft Chart Control Could Allow Information Disclosure (2567943)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 55796


The remote Windows host has an ASP.NET control that could allow information disclosure.


An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the version of Microsoft Chart Control installed on the remote Windows host due to improper handling of special characters in the URI included in an HTTP GET request.

If a web application hosted on the affected system uses Microsoft Chart Control, an unauthenticated, remote attacker could leverage this vulnerability to read the contents of files located in or under the web site directory. This may result in the disclosure of sensitive information that could be used in secondary attacks, especially in the case of the application's web.config.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for .NET Framework 4.0 and Chart Control for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1.
