Cause

The rtrlet web application in the Web Console in Novell ZENworks Asset Management (ZAM) uses a hard-coded username of  ****** and a hard-coded password of **** for the
 (1) GetFile_Password and
(2) GetConfigInfo_Password operations, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via a crafted rtrlet/rtr request for the HandleMaintenanceCalls function.
