Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-04-12 13:38:02 UTC
A local file exposure flaw was found in the way HTML browser plug-in of SabreDAV, a WebDAV framework for the PHP language, processed certain file system paths for icon and image files on certain platforms. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted icon / image file location that, when processed by an application using the SabreDav framework, would allow them to (remotely) obtain arbitary system file, accessible with the privileges of that SabreDAV application.

Comment 3 Jan Lieskovsky 2013-04-12 13:58:07 UTC
Suggested workaround (from [1]):
---------------------------------
As a workaround, you setup the plugin as such:

// 1.8
$plugin = new Sabre\DAV\Browser\Plugin(true, false);

// 1.6, 1.7
$plugin = new Sabre_DAV_Browser_Plugin(true, false);

To disable this feature completely.

php-sabredav-Sabre_DAV-1.6.5-5.el6 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 6 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
