Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a Java application that is vulnerable to
multiple attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running OpenConnect WebConnect, a web-based graphical
user interface that gives remote users console access to mainframe,
midrange, and Unix systems using a Java-based telnet console which
communicates securely over HTTP. OC WebConnect 6.44 and 6.5 (and
possibly previous versions) have multiple remote vulnerabilities :

- A remote attacker can bring about a denial of service by
sending an HTTP GET or POST request with an MS-DOS device
name in it (Windows platforms only).

- A read-only directory traversal vulnerability in 'jretest.html'
permits exposure of files formatted in an INI-style format (any
platform).
