PTK Multiple Information Disclosure Weaknesses
Release Date : 2012-03-30
Criticality level : Not critical
Impact : Exposure of sensitive information
Where : From remote
Solution Status : Unpatched
Software: PTK 1.x
Multiple weaknesses have been discovered in PTK, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information.
The weaknesses are caused due to the application not properly restricting access to files within the /log, /images, and /report folders and can be exploited to e.g. disclose valid user names, case evidence files, and generated reports via brute force attacks.
The weaknesses are confirmed in version 1.0.5. Other versions may also be affected.
Restrict access to the log, images, and report folders (e.g. via .htaccess).
