In some cases the unix hsphere installer leaves the user unixtest with a pass of unixtest1 and ftptest with a pass of ftptest1 laying behind. These accounts usually have a normal shell access.

This software is NOT very fun to work with from an admin standpoint!

AFFECTED PRODUCTS
=================
H-Sphere Winbox

Positive Software Corporation

OVERVIEW
========
H-Sphere is a scalable multiserver web hosting solution.
It has many advanced features and a sophisticated billing
system to automate and improve your web hosting tasks.
H-Sphere was designed to work on many servers and can be
scaled by adding more web, mail, database, and DNS servers
without any downtime. It provides a simple, easy-to-use web
interface that can be maintained from any computer with
internet connection. H-Sphere was written in Java and works
with any SQL-compliant database.




DETAILS
=======
1. local user/pass information disclosure




Item 1
---------

While performing administration duties for domain management,
HSPHERE writes log information containing domain information
and user/password combinations.

C:\HSphere.NET\log

action.log <--- stores user/pass
resources.log <--- stores user/pass

example:
[0/00/2005 0:00:00 AM] Thread: 0000; Requested method "account.update" with
parameters resourcename=account, username=theuser, password=thepassword


on windows machines running HSPHERE, the default install
does not restrict permissions to this folder, allowing
less priveleged users to read account information.



SOLUTION:
=========
Psoft has been contacted and a patch released
it is available at:
