Sielco Sistemi Winlog Arbitrary File Disclosure

medium Nessus Plugin ID 61493


A SCADA application on the remote host has an arbitrary file disclosure vulnerability.


The remote host is running Sielco Sistemi Winlog. A WinLog project on the remote host is running a TCP server. By connecting to this TCP server and utilizing opcode 0x78 to open a file, and opcode 0x96, 0x97 or 0x98 to read a file, a remote attacker can access the contents of any file on the remote host.

Note that this install is likely affected by several other issues, although this plugin has not checked for them.


Upgrade to WinLog 2.07.17 or later.
