/-------------------------------------- [PLESK 7.5 Reload (and lower) & PLESK 7.6 for M$ Windows path passing and disclosure] Discovered By: GuanYu Email: guanyu_vn@yahoo.com Website: HVA (http://www.vnhacker.org) --------------------------------------/

-| Description: |-

PLESK is a powerful web control panel, site builder... You can see more about it at:

http://www.swsoft.com/en/products/plesk/switch/ . So, i have found a security hole - path passing and disclosure - of this product (version

[PLESK 7.5 Reload] and [PLESK 7.6 for M$ Windows]) in the file : filemanager.php

-| What an attacker can do? |-

The attacker can take advantage of this hole to access the parent folder (which he havent

authorization). Like this:


That URL will show him (attacker) the parent folder of his "web root" folder. Using more

"/../" characters, he'll go to up, up, and up folder so he can gain lot of important info.

-| How to fix it? |-

Upgrade to the PLESK 8.0 :D.

  • End -

P/S: Sorry about my English, its to bad.
