Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2


A vulnerability has been identified with ZCM. 
First, the relative path passed into the function is appended to the base path. That base path contains both 'preboot' and 'update', meaning that the additional checks can never fail. Second, there is no guard against the path traversal using '..' in the path. Together, these issues mean that arbitrary file download is possible without credentials.


 This is fixed in version 11.3 - see KB 7014213 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.3 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7014213
