SYMPTOMS

A security patch has been released that resolves a canonicalization error that can allow a malicious user to gain additional permissions to certain types of files that are hosted on a Web server.

For this vulnerability to be exploited, several factors are involved:
  • Only file types that are implemented through ISAPI extensions are affected. It does not affect static Web page or non-Web file types such as .exe, .doc, or .bat.
  • It only affects servers that expose a Web folder structure that mirrors the physical folder structure on the server. It does not impact virtual directories.
  • It does not allow arbitrary permissions to be selected, only permissions present on an ancestor folder.
  • It provides no ability to enumerate the server and locate files that can be affected by the vulnerability.
In addition to the above, this security patch also corrects the vulnerability described by the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
276489  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/276489/ ) Patch available for Web server folder traversal vulnerability

Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server users and Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2001 users

Both Exchange 2000 and SharePoint Portal Server 2001 have problems with an older verison of this hotfix. A new update for the security patch for these products is available at the following Microsoft Web page:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms00-086.mspx (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms00-086.mspx)
