Description

                                        
                                            `Christopher Fillion's "Perception" web site hosts the LiteServe combination  
server for Win32. The server offers HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, and Telnet  
services. Included in the HTTP service is a Common Gateway Interface (CGI)  
feature that allows you to specify a CGI alias, as well as "filters" that  
are run when a file of a particular type is accessed.  
  
A vulnerability in the server related to the handling of filenames on Win32  
platforms may reveal the code of a desired CGI script to an attacker.   
Windows handles file names with the "." character (0x2E) on the end as if  
the said character had been removed. LiteServe fails to compensate for  
this behavior, and is vulnerable to a simple CGI disclosure attack.  
  
The upcoming release of LiteServe 2.03 should eliminate this vulnerability.
