cPanel Remote Backup Information Disclosure

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote host is running a version of cPanel that is either 10.9.1 or 11.4.19. The remote version of this software is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw in the 'scgiwrap' script. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a user to browse a malicious URI. In addition, this version of cPanel is vulnerable to a path disclosure flaw. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker gaining knowledge of the physical location of the different web files.

Solution

Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommednations.
