At least two products of the Elron Internet Manager family of tools contain directory traversal vulnerabilities. The problem exists in the following products:

--[ IM Message Inspector --[ IM Anti-Virus

Elron Internet Manager products that are not vulnerable are:

--[ IM Firewall

Untested Elron software is listed below:

--[ IM Web Inspector

If the IM Web Inspector comes with Elron Software's proprietary web server as well, it is undoubtedly vulnerable as well.

Exact version numbers were not obtained, this can be attributed to the tragic loss of 3 VMWare images [it was a painful experience]. Vulnerabilities were discovered on 2-21-01, so whichever versions were current at time of discovery, those are the vulnerable versions. Elron Software was contacted on 2-21-01, I was not told if they were going to release a fix or not. If you use Elron Software products, check http://www.elronsw.com for updates, or call technical support.
