Blazix JSP source and protected folder content disclosure

blazix-unauth-file-access (9952) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk


Blazix could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by improper validation of requests. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request for a known JavaServer Pages (JSP) file or to a protected folder appended with an "+" or "\" character, to bypass protection and obtain the source code of the requested JSP file or gain unauthorized access to the contents of the protected folder. An attacker could use this information to launch further attacks against the affected server.
