Vulnerability CVE-2007-4157


Published: 2007-08-03   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
PHPBlogger stores sensitive information under the web root with insufficient access control, which allows remote attackers to download a database containing an admin password hash via a direct request for data/pref.db. NOTE: this can be easily leveraged for administrative access because composing the authentication cookie only requires the password hash, not the cleartext version.
