Loss of Confidentiality
LaserFiche, when running on Netware, contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized password exposure. The Btreive tables that contain usernames, passwords, and group membership information are available for any user to read. The data inside those tables is not encrypted, which exposes the passwords in plaintext to any user. Included in the tables is the password for the administrative account. This may lead to a loss of confidentiality and/or integrity.
Currently, there are no known upgrades or patches to correct this issue. It is possible to correct the flaw by implementing the following workaround(s) according to the advisory:
"All LaserFiche tables should be secured (being client-server, users do NOT need to have any NetWare rights to the tables, or data store) from all users except the responsible records manager. Use NetWare's auditing feature in addition to the LF stuff to ensure that no direct access is made to said tables."
