CProxy Directory Traversal File Access and DoS Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Detects directory traversal file access and DoS vulnerability in CProxy

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote HTTP proxy server is affected by multiple issues.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Computalynx's CProxy Server
that suffers from the following vulnerabilities:

- Arbitrary Local File Access
CProxy permits a possible hacker to retrieve arbitrary local files
by issuing an HTTP request with directory traversal sequences
relative to a subdirectory under CProxy's cache/intracache
directory. This may lead to the disclosure of sensitive
information.

- Denial of Service Vulnerability
A possible hacker may crash the proxy while requesting arbitrary
local files, either by requesting an executable file or by
using a GET (as opposed to HEAD or POST) request.
