Description


Oliver Karow has discovered a vulnerability in BitDefender Update Server, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.

Input passed via e.g. a HTTP GET request to the BitDefender HTTP Server (http.exe) is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to display arbitrary files via directory traversal attacks.

Successful exploitation requires that the BitDefender HTTP Server is used to publish updates.
