Potential Sensitive Data Exposure in FileCloud
|Security Advisory Date||February 15, 2021|
|Vulnerability Type||Sensitive Data Exposure (for more information, see https://owasp.org/www-project-top-ten/)|
|Severity factors||Agent must be able to log in to the local network|
|Versions affected||FileCloud Version 15 through FileCloud Version 20.3.1|
|Version fixed||FileCloud Version 188.8.131.5274|
The security issue involved users whose folder permissions in FileCloud denied them access to a folder's sub-folders, but whose share permissions allowed them access to the same folder's sub-folders. Since these users could see actions on the sub-folders in their activity streams, they were able to view the names (but not the content) of the sub-folders and the files and folders they contained. If sub-folders or their files were named using confidential information, unauthorized users could see the confidential information, and in this way, it would be shared and possibly exploited.
This has been fixed in FileCloud version 184.108.40.20674 so that users who are not given access to sub-folders cannot see the sub-folder names.
