BasiliX Attachment Disclosure Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for attachment disclosure vulnerability in BasiliX

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a series of PHP scripts that are prone to
information disclosure.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running a BasiliX version 1.1.0 or lower.
Such versions save attachments by default under '/tmp/BasiliX', which is
world-readable and apparently never emptied by BasiliX itself. As a
result, anyone with shell access on the affected system or who can place
CGI files on it can access attachments uploaded to BasiliX.
