SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a flaw which allows attackers to retrieve sensitive files.
DescriptionThe remote web server (thttpd) allows an attacker to read arbitrary files on this host, by exploiting a weakness in an included ssi package, in prepending %2e%2e/ to the pathname (as in GET /cgi-bin/ssi//%2e%2e/%2e%2e/etc/passwd).
