WebLog Expert Web Server Enterprise v9.4

WebLog Expert is a fast and powerful access log analyzer. It will give you
information about your site's visitors:
activity statistics, accessed files, paths through the site, information
about referring pages, search engines, browsers,
operating systems, and more. The program produces easy-to-read reports that
include both text information (tables) and charts.

Vulnerability Type:
Authentication Bypass

CVE Reference:

Security Issue:
The "WebServer.cfg" under "ProgramData\WebLog Expert\WebServer\" used by
WebLog Expert Web Server Enterprise 9.4
has weak permissions (BUILTIN\Users:(ID)C), which allows local users to set
a cleartext password and login as admin.

A standard non Windows Administrator user can edit the 'WebServer.cfg' file
under "C:\ProgramData\WebLog Expert\WebServer"
set to a cleartext password and login as admin.


C:\ProgramData\WebLog Expert\WebServer>cacls * | more
C:\ProgramData\WebLog Expert\WebServer\WebServer.cfg BUILTIN\Users:(ID)C



Login as a 'Standard' Windows user
Comment out the Admin hashed password using ';' then add any cleartext
password as follows.


Now login in as Admin! :)
