[原文]Directory traversal vulnerability in Aprelium Abyss Web Server (abyssws) before 126.96.36.199 allows remote attackers to read files outside the web root, including the abyss.conf file, via URL-encoded .. (dot dot) sequences in the HTTP request.
Abyss Web Server is a freely available personal web server. It is maintained by Aprelium Technologies and runs on Microsoft Windows operating systems, as well as Linux.
It is possible for a remote attacker to disclose the contents of arbitrary web-readable files by making a specially crafted web request containing encoded dot-dot-slash (../) sequences.
This issue may be exploited by a remote attacker to gain access to the administrative configuration file for the web server. Another known issue regarding plaintext storage of the administrative password is described in BugTraq ID 4467 "Abyss Web Server Plaintext Administrative Password Vulnerability" .
This issue was reported for Abyss Web Server for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It is not known whether the Linux version is also affected by this vulnerability. Furthermore, it should be noted that web servers on multi-user Windows operating systems generally run with SYSTEM privileges.
Abyss Web Server Encoded Traversal Arbitrary File Access
Remote / Network Access
Loss of Confidentiality
Abyss Web Server contains a flaw that allows a remote attacker to arbitrary access files outside of the web path. By sending a specially crafted URL containing hexadecimal encoded "dot dot" characters, a remote attacker could obtain the administrative configuration file, which contains the administrative password in plaintext, resulting in a loss of confidentiality.
Upgrade to version 1.0.3 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
