Vulnerability Assessment Details

Adobe Document Server File URI Resource Access Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to write to a file using Adobe Document Server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server is affected by multiple flaws.

Description :

The remote host is running Adobe Document Server, a server that
dynamically creates and manipulates PDF documents as well as graphic
images.

The version of Adobe Document Server installed on the remote host
permits saving PDF and XML documents as well as most types of image
files using file URIs to arbitrary locations on the affected host and
with arbitrary extensions. An unauthenticated remote attacker may be
able to leverage this flaw to write a graphics image with malicious
Javascript as metadata into the Startup folders to be executed
whenever a user logs in.

Additionally, it lets a possible hacker retrieve arbitrary PDF files, XML
documents, and most types of image files, which may result in the
disclosure of sensitive information.
