GroupWise 8.0x up to and including 8.02HP3
GroupWise 2012


The HTTP interfaces for the GroupWise agents are vulnerable to an arbitrary file retrieval condition due to a failure to properly filter certain crafted directory traversal sequences. An unauthenticated remote attacker can leverage this flaw to retrieve files with the privileges of the vulnerable agent(s).


To resolve this vulnerability, apply GroupWise 8.0 Support Pack 3 (or later) or GroupWise 2012 Support Pack 1.

Previous versions of GroupWise are likely also vulnerable but are no longer supported. Customers on earlier versions of GroupWise should, at a minimum, upgrade their GroupWise agents to version 8.0 Support Pack 3 or 2012 SP1 in order to secure their system.

This vulnerability was discovered and reported by the Vulnerability Research Team of Digital Defense, Inc. (, DDIVRT-2012-42"
