Microsoft Commerce Server 2002: Logon as known user with a false password Vulnerable: Microsoft Windows Server 2000/2003 + Internet Information Server 5/6 + Commerce Server 2002 Discussion: Microsoft Commerce Server is used by company's who want to give customers the opportunity to change there own details on the internet or buying products. Company's who use it are: eCommerce site's or interactive company's The problem lays in the sample files of "authfiles". If you make your own Solution site in Commerce Server and the "authfiles" are installed on your server, you're vulnerable for positive user logon's using false passwords. If you know a user (some site's uses a e-mail address) and you go to http://site/authfiles/login.asp (some site's has it in an other directory) and you enter the Username and a false password you get a error. After the error's you go with the same browser to the directory root of the site http://site/ You get an other error and if you go again to the site and you are logon as the entered user.
