      S.A.F.E.R. Security Bulletin 000209.EXP.1.2

TITLE: Zeus Web Server - obtaining source of CGI scripts
DATE: February 09, 2000
NATURE: Remote user can obtain access to sources of CGI scripts
AFFECTED: Zeus Web Server 3.1.x and 3.3.x
FIXES: Zeus Web Server 3.3.5a is not vulnerable


Sources of CGI scripts (and other files) can be read by any user, if the
'%00' string is appended to the name of the CGI script.

Following strings can also be appended in order to reveal the source:



The Zeus Web server is vulnerable to a problem that allows remote users
to see the source of CGI scripts. Any user can append '%00' to the name
of the CGI script and view the source. Files in directories that are
configured to contain executable scripts (/cgi-bin, for example) are not
the subject to this problem.


Zeus Technology has responded immediately, and fixed the problem in
matter of hours. It is really a pleasure to get such a quick response
from the vendor. All kudos to them.

The fixed version is available at:


All customers are advised to upgrade.
