    Vulnerability in SEDUM HTTP Server


    SEDUM HTTP Server v2.0 is a web server available from
    http://www.frassetto.it and http://www.zdnet.com. A vulnerability exists
    which allows a remote user to break out of the web root using relative
    paths (ie: '..', '...').


            http://localhost/../[file outside web root]
            http://localhost/.../[file outside web root]


    No quick fix is possible.

        Vendor Status

        The author, Guido Frassetto, was contacted via <guidofrassetto.it>
    and <guidoftin.it> on Sunday, January 28, 2001 regarding version 1.1 of
    SEDUM. He replied promptly and stated that version 2.0 is immune to this
    problem. I downloaded the new version, ran more tests, and found that
    absolutely nothing is different. Since then, I have not heard back from
    Guido Frassetto.
