Sentinel Protection Server < 7.4.1 Directory Traversal File Access

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a directory traversal flaw.

Description

The remote host is running the Sentinel Protection Server. This version of Sentinel is vulnerable to a flaw where specially formatted HTTP requests, like 'GET /..\..\..\..\..\..\winnt\win.ini', will cause the server to return potentially confidential data from outside of the web directories.

Solution

Upgrade to version 7.4.1 or higher.
