Web Wiz Forums < 9.08 Multiple Script Directory Traversals

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a directory traversal flaw.

Description

The remote host is running Web Wiz Forums, a free tool for generating web-based forums. The reported version is reported to be vulnerable to a number of flaws that, if executed, would give an attacker access to confidential data. Specifically, the 'sub' parameter of the 'RTE_file_browser.asp' script fails to sanitize user-supplied data of the form '../'. An attacker can use this flaw to access data outside of the web directories. This same flaw can also be exploited via the 'file_browser.asp' script.

Solution

Upgrade to version 9.08 or higher.
