paFileDB password hash disclosure Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Acertains the version of paFileDB
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by an
information disclosure issue.
According to its version number, the remote installation of paFileDB is
vulnerable to an attack that would allow a possible hacker to view the
password hash of user accounts, including an administrator account, by
making a direct request to the application's 'sessions' directory. This
may allow a possible hacker to perform brute force attack on the password hash
and gain access to account information.
The vulnerability exists only when session-based authentication is
performed, which is not the default.
