Western Digital Arkeia lang Cookie Local File Inclusion

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 74220


The remote web server hosts a PHP script that is affected by a local file inclusion vulnerability.


The remote Western Digital Arkeia device hosts a PHP script that is affected by a local file inclusion vulnerability. A remote, unauthenticated attacker can exploit this issue to read or execute arbitrary files by crafting a request with directory traversal sequences in the 'lang' cookie.

Note that the application is also reportedly affected by a remote file upload arbitrary code execution vulnerability; however, Nessus has not tested for this issue.


Upgrade to version 10.1.9 or later.
