MDKSA-2001:083: htdig

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the htdig package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:083 (htdig).


A problem was discovered in the ht://Dig web indexing and searching program.
Nergal reported a vulnerability in htsearch that permits a remote user to pass
the -c parameter, to use a specific config file, to the htsearch program when
running as a CGI. A malicious user could point to a file like /dev/zero and
force the CGI to stall until it times out. Repeated attacks could result in a
DoS. As well, if the user has write permission on the server and can create a
file with certain entries, they can point the server to it and retrieve any file
readable by the webserver UID.
