Vulnerability Note VU#586556
Axigen Mail Server directory traversal vulnerability
Axigen Mail Server contains a directory traversal vulnerability.
CWE-22: Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory
Axigen Mail Server has a web based administration site which allows authorized administrators to perform certain actions via HTTP. The 'View Log Files' page does not sufficiently filter '..\' from web requests, making it possible for an attacker to browse, delete or download system files of the server.
A remote unauthenticated attacker may obtain sensitive information, cause a denial of service condition or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application.
We are currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem.
