Vulnerability Assessment Details

Alexandria-dev upload spoofing

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Searches for the existence of patch/index.php and docman/new.php

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host seems to be running Alexandria-Dev, an open-sourced
project management system.

The CGIs docman/new.php and patch/index.php can be used by a possible hacker
with the proper credentials to upload a file and trick the server
about its real location on the disk. Therefore, a possible hacker may use
this flaw to read arbitrary files on the remote server.

*** Nessus solely relied on the existence of this CGI to issue
*** this alert, so this might be a false positive

Solution : None at this time
Network Security Threat Level: High
