Severity: (1) A remote user could potentially view sensative information and take remote control of the server. (2) The installer installs a default username and password for the adminstrative console if auto-detect of settings is used. (3) There are also several serious file permissions problems. Problems: (1) Chili!Soft ASP ships with samples scripts which are located in /opt/casp/caspsamp by default and are installed on webservers by default accessable via http://<server>/caspsamp/ A sample script named codebrws.asp prolly taken from IIS/4.0 originally is vulnerable to a "../" attack allowing sensative information to be revieled to remote users. During brief testing I was only able to get the script to read files on directory above the caspsamp directory which is the /opt/casp directory by default. This directory contains database usernames/passwords, the server logs, and the username/password to administration console. With the password to the administrative console a remote user with web access can remotely manage the server thus openning endless possibilies since the console runs as root. It appears they attempted to prevent people from viewing files outside the samples directory because when I tried with an url not containing /caspsamp/ at the begining it would fail and warn me that I'm not allowed to view files outside the samples directory. (2) The installer program installs a default username and password for adminstration console which is remotely accessable via the web. The username/password are stored in the file /opt/admin/conf/service.pwd
