MondoSearch is web site search engine made by MondoSoft.

It is possible to enumerate the usernames of users used to access the
MondoSoft administration site.

When the MsmChgPw.msk file is accessed with certain parameters, the
usernames that can access the MondoSoft administration site will be exposed.

This may allow an attacker to focus a bruteforce attack on usernames that
are known to exist.

MondoSoft has released a patch for this issue.
