Cyber.Zer0 has discovered a security issue in Nukedit, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.
The security issue is caused due to the "dbsite.mdb" database being stored with insecure permissions inside the web root. This can be exploited to gain knowledge of sensitive information (e.g. user names and password hashes) by downloading the file.
This security issue is confirmed in version 4.9.8. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Move the database file out of the web root.
