[GLSA-200701-12] Mono: Information disclosure

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Mono: Information disclosure

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-12
(Mono: Information disclosure)


José Ramón Palanco has discovered that the System.Web class in the
XSP for the ASP.NET server 1.1 through 2.0 in Mono does not properly
validate or sanitize local pathnames which could permit server-side file
content disclosure.

Impact

A possible hacker could append a space character to a URI and obtain
unauthorized access to the source code of server-side files. An
attacker could also read credentials by requesting Web.Config%20 from a
Mono server.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
