Description

Sun ONE WebServer 6.0 prior to Service Pack 4 and Netscape/Sun iPlanet WebServer 4.1 prior to Service Pack 11 contain a directory traversal vulnerability which allows remote, unprivileged users to view files upon which the web server is running. The files which a remote user can view are limited to those which the web server process, which runs as 'nobody' can access.
