thttpd/mini_httpd < 2.24 Virtual Hosting File Disclosure

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a flaw that allows attackers to retrieve sensitive files or data.

Description

The remote host is running a vulnerable version of Acme thttpd. It is reported that versions prior 2.24 are prone to an issue that may permit an attacker to access arbitrary files on the vulnerable web server when virtual hosting is enabled. In a chrooted environment, this may only disclose directories under the chroot.

Solution

Upgrade to version 2.24 or higher.
