I must be missing what you are saying to replace 1234 with, as I didnt get
anything but errors.

However,

Deactivating the module only would not be sufficient as the module itself is
still accessible.

I would say that if you want to secure it completely, either remove it from
the modules, or rename it to something unique so that it cant be found.

Subject: PostNuke Sensitive Information Disclosure


Title: PostNuke path disclosure, and... (db name).
Version: 0.7.2.3-Phoenix (other)
Problem:

A vulnerability have been found in Postnuke (v0.7.2.3-Phoenix) which allow
users to determine the physical path of this cms.

This vulnerability would allow a remote user to determine the full path to
the web root directory and other information, like the database name (!)


Example:


http://www.target.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Members_List&file=index&le
tter=All&sortby=uname1234

Change 1234 by anything.
