[原文]Voyager web server 2.01B in the demo disks for QNX 405 stores sensitive web client information in the .photon directory in the web document root, which allows remote attackers to obtain that information.
Currently the SecurityFocus staff are not aware of any vendor supplied patches for this issue. If you feel we are in error or are aware of more recent information, please mail us at: email@example.com.
QSSL Voyager 2.0 1B .photon Directory Information Disclosure (EDBID:20207)
The web server supplied with the QNX Voyager demo disk contains several vulnerabilities.
First, Voyager will follow relative paths passed to it in requests. This includes ../ style paths, which will allow Voyager to serve pages outside of the "document root".
Another vulnerability is that the web server does not have sufficient security restrictions - this means that the web server can access any file, including protected files and special /dev entries.
As well, due to the integration of the web browser and web server, information used by the Photon GUI is easily exposed by requesting files under /.photon/. Additionally, html files generated by the web browser (error messages, for example) and the QNX configuration interface share the same directory as published html files.
While the Voyager web server is not intended to be used in a production environment, and is in fact intended only to be a demo of the QNX OS, users should be aware of these design errors.
