php0t has reported a vulnerability in Sun Java System Messaging Server / iPlanet Messaging Server, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain knowledge of potentially sensitive information.
The vulnerability is caused due to the setuid program "pipe_master" reading the msg.conf configuration file using the path specified in the "CONFIGROOT" environment variable. This can be exploited via symlink attacks to disclose the first line of arbitrary files in the returned error message.
