BlogEngine.net 18.104.22.168 and earlier versions contain an information disclosure vulnerability which could allow an attacker to gain access to credentials.
CWE-200: Information Exposure
BlogEngine.net 22.214.171.124 and earlier contain an information disclosure vulnerability which could allow an attacker to gain access to credential information. BlogEngine.net allows unauthenticated users to view system configuration files (
sioc.axd) which contain username and hashed passwords of the BlogEngine.net site.
An unauthenticated remote attacker could gain access to credential information on the BlogEngine.net system.
We are currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem.
Restrict access to the sioc.axd configuration file
Restrict access to the sioc.axd configuration file to trusted networks. If possible, configure management and transit networks for separate VLANs, or restrict access to the device using IP access lists.
