Summary
-------
By sending a specially crafted HTTP GET request a remote attacker can read arbitrary files on the target computer under the privileges of the Yawcam software or service.

Product Description
-------------------
Yawcam is a free webcam software with an integrated HTTP server and wide variety of features.

Severity Rating: High

Vulnerability description
-------------------------
The Yamcam HTTP server contains a directory traversal vulnerability that allows attacker to read arbitrary files through a sequence in the form '.x./' or '....\x/' where x is a pattern composed of one or more (zero or more for the second pattern) of either \ or ..\ for example '.\./', '....\/' or '...\./'.

For files with no extension a single dot needs to be appended to ensure the HTTP server does not alter the request.

POC
---
By sending the following string to the Yawcam HTTP server we can read the hosts file from the target machine
"GET /.\./.\./.\./.\./.\./.\./.\./windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts."
