injoin-admin-interface-view-files (9054) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk


Critical Path's InJoin Directory Server could allow a remote attacker to view the contents of arbitrary files on the server. An InJoin administrator can use the Web administrative interface (iCon) to remotely administer the Directory Server or view log files. A remote attacker with a valid administrator username and password could use the Web interface to view arbitrary files on the system by setting the value of the file= parameter in a URL request to the absolute path to any file on the system.
