Sid:
1103
--
Summary:
This event is generated when a client is requesting a file that may 
contain an administrator name and password.

--
Impact:
An attacker may be able to gain administrator access to your web server.

--
Detailed Information:
Some versions of Netscape Enterprise Server  put a world readable text 
file containing the administrator user name and encrypted password in a 
standard location within the URI space. By acessing this, an attacker 
may be able to brute force guess or even decrypt the password.

--
Affected Systems:
	Netscape Enterprise/3.6 SP3
	Netscape Fasttrack/3.0.2
	Netscape Messaging Server/3.6
	Netscape Messaging Server/4.15p2
	Netscape Collabra Server/3.54

--
Attack Scenarios:
This is an information gathering operation that could allow an attacker 
to execute a brute force password guessing attack.

--
Ease of Attack:
Moderate.   The file is easy enough to get access to, but the password 
is still encrypted.

--
False Positives:
None.

--
False Negatives:
None known.

--
Corrective Action:
Set appropriate permissions on this file or upgrade your web server 
software.
