-- Vulnerability Details:
The Check Point Endpoint Security Server and Integrity Server products inadvertently expose a number of private directories through the web interface. These directories include the SSL private keys, sensitive configuration files (often containing passwords), and application binaries.
Examples of exposed files include:
These files are also exposed via the Tomcat server:
-- Vendor Response:
Check Point has issued a hotfix for Endpoint Security Server versions R71, R72 and R73 and Integrity Server version 7.
This patch blocks remote access to the Tomcat instance (8080) and restricts access to private directories via POST and GET requests. This patch does not prevent a remote attacker from determining the size of a sensitive file by using HEAD requests.
