Is there a fix or patch for this bug? I haven't been able to find any
direct information on what versions aren't affected by this bug. I know a
couple of people that run small websites using this thing (unfortunately).

Does this only occur on Win9x?  Has anyone been able to reproduce this?
Jan, which OS/SP were you running?

I vaguely remember some discussion (in BugTraq or NTBugTraq maybe?) about
using "..." and/or "...." from the command prompt, and this is probably
to that problem.

Description: Doubledot bug in FrontPage FrontPage Personal Web Server.
Compromise: Accessing drive trough browser.
Vulnerable Systems: Frontpage-PWS32/ other versions not tested.
When FrontPage-PWS runs a site on your c:\ drive your drive could be
accessed by any user accessing your page, simply by requesting any file in
any directory except the files in the FrontPage dir. specially /_vti_pvt/.

How to exploit this bug?
Simply adding /..../ in the URL addressbar.
