Active WebCam < 5.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote host is running Active WebCam, a Java program that displays real-time video camera images over the Internet. This version of Active WebCam is vulnerable to several flaws. Specifically, it is reported that Active WebCam reveals path information and file name location (within debugging information). It is also reported that requesting a URI like 'http://www.somesite.com/A:\a.txt' leads to a Denial of Service (DoS) condition on the remote application.

Solution

Upgrade to version 5.6 or higher.
