Multiple Vulnerabilities in Active WebCam Webserver 5.5 and older Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for multiple remote vulnerabilities in Active WebCam webserver 5.5 and older

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of PY Software's Active WebCam webserver running on the
remote host is prone to multiple vulnerabilities:

o Denial of Service Vulnerabilities.
A request for a file on floppy drive may result in a dialog
prompt, causing service to cease until it is acknowledged by an
administrator. In addition, requesting the file 'Filelist.html'
reportedly causes CPU usage on the remote host to increase,
ultimately leading to denial of service.

o Information Disclosure Vulnerabilities.
A request for a non-existent file will return an error message
with the installation path for the software. Further, error
messages differ depending on whether a file exists or is
inaccessible. A possible hacker may exploit these issues to gain
information about the filesystem on the remote host.

Note that while versions 4.3 and 5.5 are known to be affected, earlier
versions are likely to be as well.
