Groove Virtual Office installation sets insecure permissions on installation files and folders by default. As a result, an attacker could gain access to sensitive data.
Groove Virtual Office provides a collaborative working environment that includes shared documents, databases, applications, and various other tools to facilitate communication and productivity. Groove Virtual Office is designed for the Microsoft Windows platform, thus the directories Groove installs are governed by the Windows NTFS directory permissions structure. There is a vulnerability in the permissions assigned to the Groove Virtual Office client installation directories. Specifically, the installation directories are accessible by members of the EVERYONE group by default.
Note that authentication information and user data are stored in these directories.
An attacker may be able to modify or view sensitive system information.
This vulnerability was reported by US-CERT.
