Reporter unauthenticated directory traversal
When installed on a Windows server, Reporter does not enforce access control policies for web-based access to files on the local file system. Reporter running on Linux is not vulnerable to this attack.
An unauthenticated attacker who is able to connect to the Reporter installation is able to read any file. The attacker cannot modify or delete files via web access. The attacker can use the information in configuration files to gain complete control of the Reporter installation.
When Reporter is deployed behind a firewall, as is recommended, an attacker must gain access from the internal network in order to mount an attack. The CVSS base scores included in this advisory are based on this deployment scenario.
If Reporter is deployed outside of the firewall. the CVSS base score would be higher. The CVSS base score for this security advisory would be a 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C).
