Hummingbird CyberDOCS sets insecure permissions on script source code files



Vendor Statement

CyberDOCS - Potential to Access CyberDOCS Script Source Code

Problem: In CyberDOCS (versions 3.5, 3.9, and 4.0), it is possible to access some CyberDOCS script source code via the browser.

Resolution: To resolve this issue, perform the following steps:

  1. Start Internet Services Manager (IIS).
  2. Expand Default Web Site and select CyberDOCS.
  3. In the right-hand pane, select an unprotected file with the ".INC" extension.
  4. Right-click and select Properties.
  5. On the File tab, clear the check mark from the "Script source access," "Read," and "Write" options.
  6. Click OK to save the changes.
  7. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for all remaining unprotected "*.INC," "*.ASA," "*.LIC," "*.LOG," "*.Settings," and "*.BAK" files that should be protected.
  8. Repeat steps 3 to 6 for other sub-directories that also contain the above unprotected files.
NOTE: This process will cause IIS to restart CyberDOCS resulting in all user sessions to be lost.

Hummingbird recommends upgrading to the latest release of this product.
