Endymion MailMan ALTERNATE_TEMPLATES "dot dot" null byte directory traversal
|mailman-alternate-templates-traversal (8357)||Medium Risk|
Endymion MailMan could allow a remote attacker to traverse directories on the Web server. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request containing "dot dot" sequences (/../) followed by the name of an arbitrary file appended with a null byte character (%00) in the ALTERNATE_TEMPLATES CGI parameter to traverse directories and view arbitrary files on the server.
Upgrade to the latest version of WebMail (3.1 or later), available from the WebMail Web site. See References.
