Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Redhat Stronghold Secure Server File System Disclosure Vulnerability

The problem:
In Redhat Stronghold from versions 2.3 up to 3.0 a flaw exists that
permits a remote attacker to disclose sensitive system files including
the httpd.conf file, if a restricted access to the server status
report is not enabled when using those features.
This may assist a possible hacker in performing further attacks.

By trying the following urls, a possible hacker can gather sensitive
information:
http://target/stronghold-info will give information on configuration
http://target/stronghold-status will return among other information
the list of request made

Please note that this attack can be performed after a default
installation. The vulnerability seems to affect all previous version
of Stronghold.
