SAFE TEAM Regulus Staff Accounts Password Hash Disclosure
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2271
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a flaw that allows attackers to retrieve sensitive files or data.
DescriptionThe remote host seems to be running Regulus, a web accounting software implemented in PHP. It is reported that every version of Regulus up to and including 2.2-95 are prone to a staff accounts information disclosure vulnerability. Any user may query the 'staffile' from the web server and be served. This file contains information about the staff accounts including password hashes which are computed using DES 56 bit. Therefore staff users passwords can be easily derived from their hash using a dictionary-based brute force attack.
SolutionNo solution is known at this time.
